Past & Present Tense
20 years of the Robinson Collection

This year marks 90 years since Robert (Bert) Vaudry Robinson established his photographic studio in Devonport in 1927, and 20 years since the first exhibition of the Robinsons’ photographs, Robinson & Son: A Photographic Collection was held at Devonport Regional Gallery. Over the past twenty years, the Robinson Collection has been a source of intrigue, nostalgia and reverence for curators, artists, community members and visitors alike. This survey exhibition revisits two decades of Robinson Collection exhibitions, while marking the beginning of the next chapter of the Robinson archive.

Amber Koroluk-Stephenson: Homeland

Homeland reflects on Australian identity and possibilities of the Australian landscape. Subverting traditional depictions of the Australian landscape largely associated with the bush and the outback, the artist draws connections between native and introduced species; natural and artificial landscapes, the wild and the tame, the civilised and the non-civilised.

Angela Casey: The Black Suite

These photographic works explore experiences of hedonism, nihilism and the nature of time and waiting. Notions of afterlife also weigh into the mix. Metaphors are sourced from past and present life and culture to provide the visual language, particularly contemporary evocations of the Vanitas painting tradition.

Gina: Foundart

Foundart is an exhibition based on a series of works inspired by Gina's travels overseas. The works in Foundart are inspired by Gina's smaller works created whilst travelling, which she 'left' in public spaces for others to find. Directions were then given to those who found the works to Gina's blog where she recorded her progress and distribution.
