John Curtin Gallery is currently open with social distancing and hygiene measures in place. The exhibition 50fifty:2020 can also be viewed online in full here.
John Curtin Gallery Director, Chris Malcolm and Collection Manager, Lia McKnight have co-curated 50fifty:2020 to showcase a selection of 50 of the over 100 artworks that were acquired through the initiative, helping to rejuvenate the Curtin University Art Collection—one of WA’s most important public art collections.
The works on display will include painting, photographs, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, video and works on paper by artists working in diverse and exciting contemporary practices.
The Gallery will implement new health and safety measures in line with government guidelines to ensure visitors relax and enjoy the in-gallery experience after the COVID-19 restrictions. It will also present the exhibition alongside a digital program which features online platforms and virtual visits before progressing to an in-gallery program of artist talks and workshops as restrictions ease further.
