Another Average Dictionary

    19 Jun—21 Jul 2024

We are excited to announce the return of Jo White with a new series of small-scale paintings, opening in June at Michael Reid Murrurundi.

Brightly coloured, brimming with humour and attuned to the way familiar objects become lodged in the cultural memory, Another Average Dictionary is the follow up exhibition to our 2023 show inspired by the satirical online newspaper The Betoota Advocate.
White’s new additions to the series share certain sensibilities with the satirical online newspaper, evoking its sardonic spin on sozzled machismo, suburban torpor and everyday peccadillos.

Where Betoota‘s wry reporting on bad behaviour captures contemporary archetypes with biting specificity, Another Average Dictionary affectionately transforms everyday objects into something similarly totemic – richly drawn, warmly nostalgic and with a sting of recognition that lets us laugh at our own foibles.

For a private preview of paintings in this exhibition please contact colinesoria@michaelreid.com.au
