Devonport Regional Gallery


Join us for a Twilight Talk on the exhibition Play On: The Art of Sport / Ten Years of the Basil Sellars Art Prize, with the exhibition’s co-curator Alyce Neal, Assistant Curator, Ian Potter Museum of Art and exhibiting artist Fiona McMonagle who will speak about her work.
‘The training a boxer undertakes is one of the most focused and rigorous, the preparation to step inside the ring and take up the fight demands both mental and physical prowess, self-discipline and dedication. A boxer trains in order to be fearless, and I am fascinated by the courage of such professional sportswomen.’

-Fiona McMonagle, artist’s statement, Basil Sellers Art Prize entry, 2013.
