Rockhampton Art Gallery: Collection Intervention (Exhibition Launch)

I cannot believe that this is my first review of an exhibition launch. I have attended a few but never really had much to write about. This time, however, I was able to spend quite a bit of time exploring the exhibition as well as enjoying the launch. The exhibition in question is Collection Intervention, now on display at the Rockhampton Art Gallery. The aim of the exhibition is for the Gallery’s collection to be reinterpreted by contemporary Queensland artists. Rockhampton has amassed one of the most incredible collections of Australian art. To paraphrase the Mayor, Margaret Strelow, the collection contains a remarkable piece of work by almost every well-known Australian artsit. It would be fantastic to see these works permanently on display!Read More »

GLAM Blog Club: What I Learned in 2017 & What I Want to Learn in 2018…

Before I begin, I am going to assume there are people out there who would say “where is the museum for men in the arts?” Walk into any art gallery in the world and I challenge you to find a greater representation of women artists to men. You’ve already got your museums of men in the arts, visited by literally millions every year. There are of course exceptions, but, there are so few. Now that’s said and done, I can drop my imaginary mic and write on.Read More »

National Gallery of Victoria: The House of Dior

Hello! I’m back with another guest post for Curate Your Own Adventure. This time I’m discussing The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture exhibition, currently on show at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne. This exhibition commemorates the seventieth anniversary of the Dior fashion house, one of the most iconic couture fashion houses in the world. I’m going to try and keep this brief, as most of what I have to say simply constitutes raving about how good the exhibition is and encouraging you to visit it yourself.Read More »
