Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria is delighted to be part of the inaugural PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography with a site-responsive exhibition in Melbourne Gardens. Curated by Isobel Parker Philip, this suite of ambitious new commissions plots a pathway through the Gardens and leads visitors on a journey of discovery.
The landscape itself is enlisted as an exhibition partner, with each installation sensitively mapped and in dialogue with its surrounds. Artists James Nguyen, Luke Parker, Steven Rhall, Yvonne Todd, Grace Wood and Emmaline Zanelli engage with the Gardens’ history and draw reference from its rich archival holdings. Garden Variety challenges the idea that a garden exists and functions as an idyllic and politically neutral space.
