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.
Just opened! Activate,animate, complicate, grow: what new acquisitions can do to and for the collection showcases 22 artworks recently acquired by the University of Melbourne in dialogue with existing works from the collection. Presented as individual ‘case studies’, the relationships between works demonstrate the ways that new additions breathe life into permanent collections.
