Local | Remix: the cultural collections of Nillumbik Shire Council is an exciting new exhibition featuring works from Council’s
Art, Civic and Public art collections.
This free exhibition considers what art and artefacts can tell us about place and perceptions of a local identity.
Importantly the exhibition highlights the work of women artists. Often overlooked in accolades, the contribution of women artists to the Shire is significant and many works in the collection highlight their strong artistic practice.
In a direct response to a recent gender audit of the Nillumbik Shire Art Collection register and to promote the under representation of women artists, this exhibition flips the statistics of the current collection and presents an exhibition featuring more than 60 percent women artists.
Built up by Council and the community over many years, the Nillumbik Art, Civic and Public Art collections now have more than 500 works, many with strong connections to the local area and its artistic heritage.
This exhibition will feature pieces from such internationally renowned artists such as Julia deVille, Clifton Pugh, Myra Skipper and Vipoo Srivilasa, as well as exciting emerging artists such as Nicholas Currie.
