Birth­day Cel­e­bra­tions at Bendigo

Where Melbourne - - Where Now Exhibitions -

Bendigo Art Gallery is cel­e­brat­ing its 130-year an­niver­sary with a dy­namic new ex­hi­bi­tion of his­toric, con­tem­po­rary, cu­ri­ous, sig­nif­i­cant, and much-loved favourite works from the Gallery’s renowned col­lec­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the gallery’s vast col­lec­tion in the con­text of so­cial, artis­tic and com­mu­nity change as well as the evo­lu­tion of the Gallery it­self. Works which have sub­ject mat­ter, theme, style or medium in com­mon are be­ing brought to­gether, of­fer­ing a fresh ap­proach to the gallery’s im­mense col­lec­tion. New ac­qui­si­tions by lead­ing con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian artists in­clud­ing Hany Ar­man­ious, Michael Cook and Polix­eni Pa­pa­petrou will be shown along­side some of the first ever works ac­quired by the founders of the Gallery in 1887. Join­ing these works are long-time favourites and lesser-known gems from the col­lec­tion.

From 4 March, Tue–sun 10am–5pm, Bendigo Art Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo. 5434 6088. www.bendigoart­gallery.com.au
