Hidden behind the modest guise of Hobart’s LINC Tasmania is a cache of priceless treasures. From the classically beautiful to the delightfully curious, the Allport Library and Museum of Fine Arts is sometimes referred to as Hobart’s secret jewel.

Over the past year a group of local artists have studied the Allport collection. They have read, drawn, photographed and dreamed their way through the myriad of pieces and in doing so, found inspiration for their own new precious works.

From silk fans to historical books, colonial portraits to archaic household objects, the artists have taken stories and aesthetics from the past and brought them into the present. The pieces both revere and reference the old while informing and inspiring the new.

The contemporary works will be displayed inside the Allport rooms; interrupting the calm, distorting the known, and reflecting on change.

 

Curators: Christl Berg and Penny Carey-Wells
Artists: Christl Berg, Lorraine Biggs, Irene Briant, Faridah Cameron, Penny Carey-Wells, Chantale Delrue, Diane Masters, Janelle Mendham, Leonie Oakes, Julie Payne, Diane Perndt and Francis Watson
