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.

LITTLE GALLERY PROJECT SPACE

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.
