This exhibition continues the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s quest to explore new approaches to the long-term display of the University of Melbourne Art Collection. Rather than a selection based on theme, collection, or historical period, this exhibition includes key artworks that have been selected as the most impressive and valuable.
Richard Avedon People celebrates the work of American photographer Richard Avedon (1923 to 2004). With work from 1949 to 2002, the exhibition offers an in-depth overview of Avedon’s achievements in the art of black and white portraiture photography. In the show, instantly recognisable and influential artists, celebrities, and political activists including Truman Capote, Elizabeth Taylor, Twiggy, Malcolm X, and Bob Dylan are presented alongside portraits of the unknown or long forgotten. Coming soon, opening 6 December 2014
