Photographic & digital works

Contemporary art collectors and museum donors Polly and Mark Addison have generously loaned a selection of works of art from the late 20th century and early 21st century to inaugurate the large gallery in the museum.

This exhibition, selected by museum director, Linda Frickman and collector Mark Addison, focuses on works that utilize photographic, digital and other media-based processes. 

Challenging our perceptions of the world 

Reflection, Refraction, Reconfiguration looks at images that – through the lens of the camera, through digital manipulation, or through the hands of the artist – change and challenge perceptions of the world.

The exhibition will feature work by a number of important contemporary figures from around the globe including Mel Chin, Jeanne Dunning, Jana Sterbak, Mona Hatoum, and William Kentridge.
