FEAST | Christmas At The Johnston Collection 2017
Monday 2 October 2017 - Wednesday 31 January 2018
Sensory feasts to feats of thought and contemplation to feast your eyes on will be parcelled up in our third survey exhibition, FEAST. This year we've hand-picked some of our great contributors who have exhibited work from over five years of Christmas exhibitions, along with a smattering of new ones, for our annual tour.
With works inspired by William Johnston and his collection, this exhibition will feature works by artists and guilds from Mornington Peninsula (2013-2014), Geelong and the Surf Coast (2014-2015), Gippsland and environs (2015-2016) and Melbourne city (2016-2017).
The Johnston Collection encourages challenges to traditional making, thinking, and practice, through contemporary responses to the Collection, along with more traditional responses that reflect historical techniques, materials, and making.
FEAST brings together superb creations by some of Melbourne and Victoria's best contemporary makers in one magnificent show. Old will be new again.
