McMillan, T.D., 'Ten Years of Tears', Ten Years of Tears, Flare, and Todd McMillan- Selected Works, Museum of Old and New Art, Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania, and Wagga Wagga Regional gallery.
Ten Years of Tears was a survey show of my practice at the Museum of Old and New art. Bringing together works I have produced in disparate mediums, produced for different shows, the curatorial premise of Ten Years of Tears saw the identification of the reoccurrence of the sea, and being overwhelmed by nature as central motifs within my work. These central motifs extended and contributed to a contemporary understanding of Romanticism and the Sublime as presented by artist such as Tacita Dean, Bas jan Ader and Guido van der Werves. Significantly the exhibition was the first solo survey show presented by an Australian artist at MONA. In bringing together contemporary technology, with those of varying degrees of obsoleteness, the exhibition tested the role of the `new in making contemporary image based art. The exhibition consisted of three 16mm projections, three overhead Projectors re-engineered to project moving image content, four separate video installations, a suite of cyanotype photographs, and a selected collection of books. The significance of this exhibition can be attested by the fact that of the numerous works on display Ague 2009, Albatross 2013, Flare 2013, wee the recipients of the Australia Council New Work grants in the emerging, mid-career, and establish grant categories\ respectively. Each grant was successfully acquitted. The Exhibition was a public programming critical success. There were documented1500 daily gallery attendees. Subsequently the exhibition was reviewed in Art Monthly and a book was published by the museum with a contribution by the esteemed Australian author and Nobel prize nominee Gerald Murnane.
