Peter Cripps

Born 1948, Melbourne. Lives and works Melbourne.

Peter Cripps is an artist, curator and educator and has been a key figure in Australian art since the 1970s. Emerging at a time when minimal and conceptual art were at the forefront of contemporary practice, Cripps’ work has been concerned with the formal, conceptual, phenomenological and ideological relationships between objects and the spaces in which they are presented.
Key solo exhibitions include Endless Space, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2012); Peter Cripps: Towards an Elegant Solution, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2010); Peter Cripps: Projects for Two Museums, Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide (1993); and Peter Cripps: Namelessness – A Play and Installation, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (1988).
He has participated in more than 50 group exhibitions from 1973 including Less Is More, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2012); Mirror Mirror: Then and Now, Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide (2010) and Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2009); Melbourne><Brisbane: Punk, Art and After, Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne, Melbourne (2009); Pitch Your Own Tent: Art Projects / Store 5 / 1st Floor, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne (2005); and The Readymade Boomerang, 8th Biennale of Sydney, Sydney (1990).
Cripps’ work is held in public collections throughout Australia and a catalogue raisonne of his work, Peter Cripps: Towards an Elegant Solution, was published by Australian Centre for Contemporary art, Melbourne in 2010.
