Monash University Museum of Art launches the exhibition
'People, Places + Ideas' to mark four decades of the University's
prestigious Collection. Curator Linda Michael has selected three
groupings of works acquired from 1961 to the present, which focuses on
three strong themes within the Collection: portraiture, the city and the
suburbs, and conceptual and post-conceptual art.
Monash University began
collecting art when it was founded in 1961. The Collection, which has
always had a strong focus on contemporary art, has expanded over four
decades to comprise over 1,200 works by more than 330 of Australia's
most renowned established and emerging contemporary artists.
Includes key works by artists Howard Arkley, Stephen Bush, Simryn Gill,
Callum Morton, Tracey Moffatt, Jacky Redgate, Tom Roberts, Robert
Rooney, Fred Williams, Jenny Watson, Anne Zahalka, Constanze Zikos,
