There is a certain Slant of light

5 Mar 2022 – 5 Mar 2023

What is light?

It is the warmth from the sun, it is all colour, it is particles of energy, it travels in waves, it is fast. Starlight, light on water, the iridescence of shells, light is refracted through glass, it falls on skin and fabric. Light is a sudden flash, a revelation or, as in the famous poem by Emily Dickinson which lends its title to this exhibition, light is life and death.
This exhibition brings together historical works from the CAM collection with contemporary art and objects borrowed from generous artists and lenders.

Artists include: Rick Amor, Howard Arkley, Clarice Beckett, Penleigh Boyd, Rupert Bunny, Alexander Colquhoun, Ethel Carrick Fox, E Phillips Fox, Mark Galea, William Gould, Lola Greeno, Robert Hunter, Percy Leason, Fred Leist, Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Frederick McCubbin, Max Meldrum, Margaret Preston, Tom Roberts, Jeffrey Smart, Arthur Streeton, Naminapu Maymura-White and Unknown makers.
