HOME MADE GOOD | Christmas at The Johnston Collection 18|19
Monday 1 October 2018 – Tuesday 5 February 2019
Our Summer | Christmas exhibition continues our collaborations with contemporary makers by inviting, supporting and encouraging them to create ‘new works based on old objects.’
This year, The Johnston Collection has commissioned Melbourne-based artists and collectives to create and contribute to our annual Summer exhibition. Artists include
Dear Songsuwan from KAMI
The Bond Family
Hotham Street Ladies
The Country Women's Association of Victoria Inc.
The Johnston Collection encourages challenges to traditional making, thinking and practice through contemporary responses to the Collection, along with more customary responses that reflect historical techniques, materials and making. This exhibition offers an ‘inspired’ interpretation of the Collection.
Work by some of Melbourne's best contemporary makers will be brought together in one magnificent show.
We encourage you to book early for this popular exhibition-house tour. ‘Christmas at The Johnston Collection 18|19 is not to be missed.
