Everything old is new again in this exhibition reimagining artworks from the 19th and early 20th century
Bendigo Art Gallery is digging back into its collection and inviting contemporary artists to reimagine ten works from its 19th and early 20th century Australian and European collection. Not only will the artists reimagine the pieces in new forms – the exhibition includes works using performance, sound, film, painting and textiles – but they'll be reimagining these histories and reflecting on how the world has changed since the artworks were originally created. The works will be installed throughout the contemporary and heritage courts of the gallery.
The exhibition is curated by Jessica Bridgfoot and the artists are: Denis Chapman, Gabrielle de Vietri, FAMILY FIRST! (Devon Ackermann & Paul Yore), Juan Ford, Andrew Goodman, Bridie Lunney, Phuong Ngo, Jacques Soddell, Christian Thompson and Seecum Cheung, Maike Hemmers, Pilar Mata Dupont, Isabelle Sully and Flora Woudstra.
