Australian artist Gordon Bennett passed away on June 3, 2014, from natural causes at the age of 58. His sudden death came just one week after the opening of the 8th Berlin Biennale, where a series of Bennett’s never-before exhibited drawings from the early 1990s are currently on view. Bennett will be remembered as a hero of Australian art whose practice took aim at race relations, power imbalances, dominant histories and social conventions, producing some of the most iconic images of Australian art history over the past three decades.
