The Living Museum’s latest exhibition: Great Western – is a collaboration between the museum and recent graduates from the Drawing and Printmaking Department at the Victorian College of the Arts.
Featuring artists Daniel Kotsimbos, Kathleen Hicks, Chas Manning, Tamara Marrington, Brahmony Mccrossin and Lucy Wilson, each of whom have explored the rich collection of the Living Museum of the West to draw forth relationships between peripheral archival material and contemporary art practice. The artists utilise the context of site, specifically the museum’s Visitor Centre as the axis for investigation and exchange thereby bypassing the formalities of exhibition conventions to convey a social engagement with a disparate range of histories and narratives. Each work is located within and amongst the permanent displays of the museum to create conversational platforms that highlight and potentially illuminate the core objectives of the museum’s interest in the region, its people and its immediate environment.
1 December to 16 December 12 – 5 (Saturdays and Sundays only)
Opening celebration: Saturday 1 December 3 – 5
