New Histories

Exhibition and Shows

13 Apr 2018 to 29 Jul 2018

In New Histories ten contemporary artists reimagine historic works from the 19th and early 20th century Australian and European collection of Bendigo Art Gallery. Informed by technological, social, environmental, political and historical events that have occurred since the original work’s creation, artists in the exhibition revisit interpretations of Australian and European histories through the lens of contemporary culture.

Working across mediums of performance, sound, film, painting and textiles, historic and contemporary artworks will be reframed in a series of installations throughout the contemporary and heritage courts of the Gallery.

New Histories challenges the nature of art as historic record and the role of the artist as documenter, and commentator of the world.
