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.
The exhibition also includes work by Katthy Cavaliere, Olive Cotton, Max Dupain, Joachim Froese, Christine Godden, Janina Green, Fiona Hall, Penelope Malone, David Moore, George J Morris, Michael Riley and Anne Zahalka.
