REMIX: RECENT ACQUISITIONS
9 February to 28 April 2019
Exhibition Celebration: Friday 22 February, 6 to 8pm
Remix: Recent Acquisitions presents a diverse and distinct selection of artworks, acquired by LRG from 2016 to 2018.
Music and art collide, and Curator becomes DJ, as the selection of works are ‘remixed’ at an undefined point during the exhibition. Works will be relocated, added or removed – creating a fresh ‘mix’, altering the way the viewer engages with the works, and the ‘melody’ they experience.
The exhibition presents works by artists both living and passed, such as Brook Andrew, Denis Beaubois, Harold Cazneaux, Wolfgang Sievers and Richard Tipping; across mediums including sculpture, printmaking, photography, film and installation.
Remix: Recent Acquisitions demonstrates LRG’s continuing commitment to the expansion and maintenance of a significant public collection, by collecting the works of prominent local and national artists.
