Be part of a MASSIVE exhibition launch on Saturday 18 May as two new exhibitions come to our galleries. Admission is free. All are welcome.
IN-Formalism witnesses the evolution of abstract non-objective art in Australia from 1968. The exhibition surveys the key generations of artists who have contributed to the ongoing language of abstract art. The exhibition presents these art works alongside a chain of references to the Liverpool area, revealing the influences of abstract non-objective art as broad and still constantly evolving. IN-Formalism launches Saturday 18 May.
Drawing from iconic and classical images of the Madonna and Child (created mostly by men), artists in Everyday Madonna respond to the ideas of motherhood from their own perspective. They respond to societal and cultural expectations of motherhood to create an expanded definitions of mothers: real, imperfect, resilient, vulnerable, leaders of resistance, fierce protectors and artists. Everyday Madonna launches Saturday 18 May.
As well as the opportunity to experience the three stunning exhibitions, attendees will also be treated to complementary wine and fare from in-house restaurant Bellbird Dining + Bar throughout the day. A seasonal dining destination, Bellbird combines fresh produce harvested on-site with direct relationships with local artisan suppliers to offer a genuine farm-to-table experience at pub prices.
