Murray Art Museum Albury presents ‘What Remains’, a new presentation of fourteen artists drawn from the museum’s permanent Collection.
Central to the exhibition is a series of abstract sculptures by Wiradjuri artist Nicole Foreshew, titled Remain. The clay and iron oxide forms have been molded to express her deep connection to Ngurambanggu (Country) and kin.
This idea of connection to land, and impacts on the land and its people are expanded on in the work of First Nation artists Michael Riley, Karla Dickens, Kevin Gilbert, Treahna Hamm and Hayley Millar Baker.
A changing environment is further considered through the 19th Century work of Alfred William Eustace and more contemporary photographs by Chantelle Bourne and Jozef Vissel. While a set of works by artists Tim Silver, Amanda Williams, Ernst Fries, Patrick Hartigan and Cornelia Parker have erosion, aging, and change as central concerns.
Our collective impact on the land is becoming harder to ignore. What Remains reminds us to consider what legacy we wish to leave behind.
‘What Remains’ is one of six exhibitions currently taking place. With multiple gallery spaces, there is something for everyone , including local artists, works from the permanent collection, and children’s installations.
