Celebrating two new exhibitions at Deakin Art Gallery
In need of a break between classes? Don’t miss these two new exhibitions now showing at our Burwood Campus.
A leg through the ceiling: the art and collection of Etta and Emmanuel Hirsh
Curated by James Lynch, this exhibition celebrates the recent gift and long-term loan of artworks from the family of pioneering art collectors Etta and Emmanuel Hirsh to Deakin University.
The project highlights the significance of these leading Naarm/Melbourne collectors of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s and their dedication to artists, new ideas, risk-taking and the importance of living creative and cultural lives.
Deakin University Art Gallery, Melbourne Burwood Campus, Building FA. Open now until 16 December 2022, 11am–5pm Monday to Friday.
