We invite you to join us for the opening of can’t buy me love, an exhibition by Amala Groom X Andrew Burrell.
Amala Groom is a Wiradyuri conceptual artist whose practice is informed and driven by First Nations epistemologies, ontologies, and methodologies. Andrew Burrell (UTS, DAB, School of Design) is a practice-based researcher and educator who investigates the relationship between human subjectivity and virtual and augmented environments.
Presented through the lens of virtual reality, can’t buy me love is an immersive experience that purports to sell the audience the intangibility of spiritual enlightenment. It brings “reality” into a space that is “unreal” and where the item that is for sale is one that cannot be bought.
can’t buy me love is developed with support from UTS Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building and UTS Faculty of Law and as part of the 2021 UTS Artist in Residence Program.
The UTS Artist in Residence program is generously funded by the Anita and Luca Belgiorno-Nettis Foundation and the UTS Faculty of Engineering and IT.
