Robyn Stacey: as still as life

24 Nov 2018 - 3 Mar 2019

Robyn Stacey: as still as life leads audiences into the tantalising world of the still life tradition. The exhibition opens with an exploration of still life photographs drawn from MGA’s collection, placing the genre and Robyn Stacey’s work into context.

Stacey is one of Australia’s leading photographic artists whose fascination with the still life genre inspired the magnificent works in this exhibition. Through the contemporary medium of photography Stacey brings historical collections to life on a monumental scale, interrogating what these collections meant for the original owners and brilliantly interweaving personal historical narratives into sumptuous still life.

Artists: Ann Balla, Del Kathryn Barton, Francis Busby, Nanette Carter, Jack Cato, Katthy Cavaliere, Olive Cotton, Sean Davey, Julie Davies and Alex Rizkalla, Marian Drew, Max Dupain, John Eaton, Susan Fereday, Joachim Froese, Viva Gibb, Christine Godden, Janina Green, Fiona Hall, Carol Jerrems, Ruth Maddison, Penelope Malone, David Moore, George J Morris, Jozef Stanislaw Ostoja-Kotkowski, Susan Purdy, Jacky Redgate, Jon Rhodes, Michael Riley, Matthew Sleeth, Robyn Stacey, Mark Strizic, Unknown, Beverley Veasey, Anne Zahalka.
