Reviewing

Lisa Garland, Troy Ruffels, Ilona Schneider, Brian Sollars, Bert Robinson and Albert Robinson (dec)

Different times and cultural settings, combined with changing technologies, have influenced the way artists select, conceptualise and create their photographic work. ReViewing examines the sphere of photography from analogue to digital, documentation, social history and fine art.

The impetus for the exhibition is the Robinson Collection of Devonport. The Collection of over 40,000 negatives made by Bert Robinson and his son Albert between 1927 and the mid 1970s, features studio portraits, images of the city, rural life and special events on the North West Coast of Tasmania.

Four contemporary photo-media artists, Lisa Garland, Troy Ruffels, Ilona Schneider and Brian Sollars, have been invited to create images by referencing the photographic archives of the Collection and the versatility and ascendency of the photographic medium through early and contemporary photographic interpretations.

Curators: Dr Ellie Ray & Dunja Rmandic
