Robyn Stacey: as still as life
A Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) travelling exhibition
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 lifes.
Artists: Katthy Cavaliere, Olive Cotton, Max Dupain, Joachim Froese, Christine Godden, Janina Green, Fiona Hall, Penelope Malone, David Moore, George J Morris, Michael Riley, Robyn Stacey, Anne Zahalka
Curator: Anouska Phizacklea
