FORMATION is now open at The Dax Centre in Melbourne and will run until 13th December, every Weds-Friday from 12pm-5pm.
Celebrating over sixty years of expression and creativity, this free-entry exhibition explores the work of six contemporary artists supported by Arts Access Victoria alongside art from the Cunningham Dax Collection.
Ms Harriet Shing MP and Parliamentary Secretary for Mental Health will officially open the exhibition on Wednesday 6 November from 6-8pm at The Dax Centre. All are welcome for this free public event.
Formation is a creative collaboration between Arts Access Victoria and The Dax Centre, with artwork being created by Arts Access in direct response to The Cunningham Dax Collection.
Art exhibited includes painting on canvas, watercolour, drawing, objects, glasswork, mural and textiles. The pieces displayed span over 60 years of art making with one of the earliest textile pieces being from the early 1950’s. Due to their fragility it is rare for these older pieces to be exhibited in the gallery and they cannot be shared or reproduced digitally.
Works will be available for purchase by a number of artists supported by Arts Access Victoria including Guler Altunbas, Laurence Flegg, Jac Gelbert, Paul Henry, Adam Knapper, John Puli.
Admission is FREE.
