Animal Kingdom

The Johnston Collection - House of Ideas 2017

With Kate Rohde, Troy Emery, Julia deVille, Vipoo Srivilasa, Alison Cole, Lesley Uren, and Yvonne Walton

Tuesday 13 June 2017 - Tuesday 19 September 2017

We're all part of the animal kingdom, appearing in what Darwin called "endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful". As part of our continuing 'house of ideas' series and through contemporary artists and historical objects, this audacious exhibition brings together and seeks out representations of animals which have continued to inspire and inform us over time.

In ANIMAL KINGDOM, exquisite animal-inspired objects from The Johnston Collection will be juxtaposed alongside fantastic creations by some of Melbourne's best contemporary makers including Kate Rohde, Troy Emery, Julia deVille, Vipoo Srivilasa, Alison Cole, Lesley Uren, and Yvonne Walton, in one magnificent show.

As part of our 'house of ideas' series, ANIMAL KINGDOM continues to explore William Johnston's collection in new ways.

Visitors to ANIMAL KINGDOM will discover a world of animals within The Johnston Collection.
