A Place for Everything
18-24 Down Street Collingwood, VIC
12 December 2019 to 21 February 2020
Wednesday to Friday 11am to 4pm
The Artbank Melbourne registration team is giving the public an opportunity to take a sneak peek at artworks housed in Collingwood for its first collection based exhibition. Drawing from its geographical location, A Place for Everything is an exhibition which showcases works by Melbourne based artists.
The framework of the exhibition stems from a discussion around the physical nature of collection storage – where everything has a place – and Artbank as a program which leases artworks to clients for display in public and private spaces.
Through the lens of collections management professionals whose day-to-day is the care, movement and storage of artwork, this exhibition provides an opportunity to showcase works that can’t always be on display in the collection store. Establishing a formal dialogue between these works within an exhibition context allows relationships to form organically between older and more recent acquisitions.
