NOTORIOUS BVRG - The Life and Times of our Permanent Collection

28 June to 7 September 2019

Join us for the opening event 12 noon Friday 28 June 2019


NOTORIOUS BVRG presents works from the BVRG permanent collection, which have never before been exhibited together, with the intention of bringing new dialogues to old, all the while investigating the idea and relevance of collecting in the public realm today.

The collection contains artworks from well-recognised artists such as Judy CASSAB, Sidney LONG, Hilda RIX NICHOLAS, Rosie DEACON and Ken DONE, among others. 

Some recent additions to the collection have been made possible by the Federal Government's Cultural Gifts Program  (more info here)

 

"NOTORIOUS BVRG is a timely cross section of works, historic and contemporary, that illustrate the communal importance of the Regional Gallery as a repository of our unique cultural heritage and as an illustration of our ambitions for the future."    Iain Dawson, BVRG Director
