Mineral: Art of Matter 1400-2000

4 Aug 2018 - 7 Oct 2019

Highlights from Latrobe Regional Gallery’s Object Collection

Mineral: Art of Matter 1400-2000 is the latest exhibition drawn from Latrobe Regional Gallery’s (LRG) diverse object collection, exploring the theme of ‘mineral’ based materials used in art.  Highlighting a range of modern and contemporary favourites, Mineral: Art of Matter 1400-2000  shares connections: through material, process and concept.

LRG’s permanent collection consists of over 1400 works; encompassing glass, ceramics, paintings, photography, works-on-paper and more. The selection of works shown in Mineral are an invitation to rediscover familiar aspects of the collection, in new ways.

Many of Australia’s contemporary artists working across a range of mediums and styles will be presented, in celebration of the continuing growth and significance of Latrobe Regional Gallery’s permanent collection.

The exhibition features artists such as Alfredo Barbini, Stephen Fry, Eileen Gordon, Mandy Gunn, Michael Keighery, Clive Murray-White, Jasmine Targett and Les Kossatz. Mineral: Art of Matter 1400-2000 acknowledges ways in which artists have engaged various styles and concepts to create objects that shift across time and location.
