Drawn from the University of Melbourne Art Collection, this small-scale focus exhibition includes posters from the Gerard Herbst Poster Collection and prints that depict figures engaged in various forms of sport and movement.
A special feature of the exhibition is a set of seven works by French artist, Marie Laurencin, who was an important figure in the Parisian avant-garde during the first years of the twentieth century.
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.
