My Fellow Aus-tra-aliens
Aleks Danko My Fellow Aus-tra-aliens Exhibition Catalogue
This catalogue supports the exhibition MY FELLOW AUS-TRA-ALIENS, presenting artworks spanning nearly five decades of the long career of Victorian-based artist Aleks Danko, from his earliest exhibitions in the late 1960s through to his recent installations.
Born in Adelaide in 1950 to Ukrainian émigré parents, Danko began making art as a teenager in his family’s garage. After studying at the South Australian School of Art he moved to Sydney in 1971, where he was a central figure in the city’s conceptual art movement. There the young artist began his art practice as he would continue: mining the complexities of lived experience and pricking the collective social conscience, using sculpture, performance and process as his means.
