A touring exhibition from the Museum Contemporary Art Australia, South of no North: Laurence Aberhart, William Eggleston, Noel McKenna presents three artists whose works are connected by an interest in the vernacular and a regional sense of place.

South of no North is part of an ongoing series of MCA exhibitions that place the work of an Australian artist alongside that of international peers. The exhibitions provide opportunities for artists to be positioned in a broader global dialogue.

Australian artist Noel McKenna has chosen to be shown alongside two photographers. The enormously influential American photographer William Eggleston lives and works in Memphis, Tennessee, deep in the American south, and works exclusively with colour photography and New Zealander Laurence Aberhart who resides in Russell on the North Island of New Zealand and works predominantly with black and white photography.

All three artists have a common literary sensibility that captures details of the built environment and human interactions that have their own particular pathos making manifest the power of art to alert us to the wonder and poetry that is all around us.
