A BOY'S OWN STORY | Christmas at The Johnston Collection 2019|20
30 Sep 2019 - 4 Feb 2020

Our Summer | Christmas exhibition will continue our collaborations with makers -  inviting, supporting and encouraging them to create ‘new works based on old objects.’

This year, The Johnston Collection has invited Melbourne and state-based artists and collectives to create and contribute to our annual Summer exhibition.

The exhibition will feature work by Douglas McManus; Chris O'Brien; Troy Emery; Noel Button; Lucas Grogan; Kevin Smith; Tristan Brumby-Rendell; Kevin Smith; Luke Hockley; John Scollay; Steve Campbell-Wright; Stephen Gallagher; David Pearce; Terry Williams; Trevor Smith; along with David Collyer, his father A. Keith Collyer (1917-1983) and grandfather Archibald Collyer (1883-1939).

The Johnston Collection will be encouraging challenges to traditional making, thinking and practice through contemporary responses to the Collection, along with more traditional responses that reflect historical techniques, materials and making.

This exhibition offers an ‘inspired’ interpretation of the Collection.
