Tracey Moffatt – BVRG

Friday 19th May, 2017 - Saturday 8th July, 2017

TRACEY MOFFATT. 1989. Something More #1.

TRACEY MOFFATT. 1989. Something More #1.

Tracey Moffatt is one of Australia’s most successful international artists, known for her film, photography and video works. Drawing on cinema, television and the media, her art is equally inspired by popular culture, recollections from her childhood and art history.

Moffatt began her career as an experimental filmmaker and producer of music videos, and she continued making films after establishing herself as a photographer. She first came to prominence in the Australian art world with her series Something More. Commissioned in 1989 by the Albury Regional Art Gallery and shot in the Link Studios in Wodonga, the series set the tone and themes for much of Moffatt’s later work. This sequence of nine images is a loose narrative, shot like film stills, in which the artist references the possible meanings of the title and its hint of sadomasochism.

This exhibition features the entire Something More series as well as a selection of photographs from Moffatt’s Scarred for Life and Some Lads series.

ELIOTH GRUNER. 1918. 'The Beach' Oil on Canvas. Howard Hinton Collection.

ELIOTH GRUNER. 1918. ‘The Beach’ Oil on Canvas. Howard Hinton Collection.

The Howard Hinton Collection, in the sheer breadth of its cover of Australian art from the 1880 to the 1940, is the only collection of its kind in regional Australia.

Howard Hinton, an avid collector of art and visitor of artists’ studios, developed his collection for the purpose of encouraging artists, educating students, and for the benefit and enjoyment of the public.  He first donated works to the Armidale Teachers College in 1929 and, by the time of his death in 1948, had given away over 1,200 works.

The Collection reflects Hinton’s early love for Victorian travel paintings as well as respect for the conventions of Australian landscape art.  The Lindsay family is strongly represented as is Streeton, Roberts, Gruner, Hilder, Murch and Feint.

Opening Saturday, July 15, 10am.
