Fiona Foley


Hatred is the subject of investigation for Australian artist Fiona Foley. Through several bodies of work, Foley has diligently explored the idea of hate as it penetrates race through politics, science and culture. Through dark humor the artist has created a series of photos title “HHH (Hedonistic Honky Haters).” These faux anthropological photos have an obvious reference to the Klu Klux Klan, and this connection only strengthens the images’ relation to reality. This year Foley had a solo exhibition titled “Red Ochre Me” at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Sydney. Other recent exhibitions include “No Shades of White” at Andrew Baker Art Dealer, Brisbane, and “Bring it on a.k.a.HHH,” International Studio and Curatorial Program (ISCP), NYC.
