Remain in Light:
Photography from the MCA Collections
A selection of key photographic works from Sydney’s renowned Museum of Contemporary Art Australia opens at Bendigo Art Gallery on 21 February, 2015.
Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections is a national touring exhibition that traces the development of contemporary photographic practice over the last 50 years.
Drawing on works from both the MCA Collection and the JW Power Collection, the exhibition presents Australian photographers alongside international and illustrates the story of the recent history of photography from the 1960s to present day.

Remain in Light crosses a range of media including black and white photography, artist books, photolithography and digital photography and brings together around 70 works from artists including Barbara Kruger, Mary Ellen Mark, Tracey Moffatt, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Mike Parr, Polixeni Papapetrou, Ed Ruscha and many more.
Viewed collectively, these works convey how photography has been at the centre of critical debates and themes throughout late twentieth and 21st century art. From the photo-document to mass –produced imagery, through to the rise of online platforms like Flickr and Instagram as a way of distributing images, Remain in Light looks at how traditional genres of photographic practice have been reinvigorated.
“The Bendigo collection is rich in photographic works and this medium continues to challenge and engage our visitors. We are delighted to be present this aspect of the MCA collection here in Bendigo alongside our collection as it reinforces the importance and accessibility of photography,” said Karen Quinlan, Director of Bendigo Art Gallery.

Remain in Light: Photography from the MCA Collections, February 21 – 19 April, 2015.
Laurence Aberhart, Ian Burn, Lewis Baltz, Janet Brosious, Christo, Elaine Campaner, Destiny Deacon, Rotimi Fani Kayode, Richard Hamilton, Barbara Kruger, Rosemary Laing, Suzy Lake, Mary Ellen Mark, Ricky Maynard, Tracey Moffatt, Trent Parke, Patricia Piccinini, Mike Parr, Polixeni Papapetrou, Ed Ruscha, Julia Rrap, Robert Rooney, David Stephenson, Emma White and William Yang.

Bendigo Art Gallery

Filed under: art — site admin @ 5:36 pm

Arguably one of the most revealing exhibitions to be seen in Australia for some time, Undressed: 350 years of underwear in fashion is showing at Bendigo Art Gallery until October 26.

Which means there’s just three weeks left to see these precious intimate garments, including Queen Victoria’s drawers and one of the earliest known bras.

The exhibition, a world premiere, features more than 80 garments from the V&A’s extensive collection of underwear, most not displayed before, and includes striking contemporary pieces by world famous fashion designs such as Christian Dior, Gianni Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier and Vivienne Westwood.

A highlight is the show stopping couture gown by Bottega Veneta worn by Emma Watson on the red carpet.

The exhibition includes corsets, crinolines, bustle pads, petticoats and brassieres as well as a select display of men’s undergarments and photography from the V&A’s own archive.

“Undressed offers an incredibly rare opportunity for audiences to explore the hidden aspects of fashion, from corsetry through to contemporary couture,” said Karen Quinlan, Director of Bendigo Art Gallery.

“We’ve loved the way press and audiences have responded to the show. The subject matter elicits a sense of fun, but the serious side, the historical value of the exhibition has also been noted.”

“Alongside our other current touring exhibition, The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece, which displays precious Greek and Roman antiquities from the British Museum, we have two incredible shows, both from London, both offering unique but aligned perspectives on how humanity has worked with and felt about the human form through the passage of time.”

Undressed: 350 years of Underwear in Fashion is on until 26 October, 2014.
The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece is on until 9 November, 2014.

What the press are saying about Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion:

“…it’s the international premiere of Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion that stitches a new seam in the gallery’s sartorial sassiness. But rather than displaying garments in chronological order, the exhibition waltzes visitors into a romantic world of themes, fabrication and technological diversity.” – Jane Rocca, The Weekly Review

“Curatorially, an exhibition about underwear might strike you as hitting below the belt. But the large show of under-garments at the Bendigo Art Gallery, rifled from the drawers of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, proves that the theme is historically valuable and aesthetically imaginative.” – Robert Nelson, The Age.

Bendigo’s much-loved Chinese Lion Dancers will kick off a day of celebrations on Saturday 15th March, when the new $8.5 million expansion of Bendigo Art Gallery is opened to the public.
The dancers’ colourful (and noisy) blessing to the new wing will be the first in a day-long program of activities designed to celebrate this major new milestone in Bendigo Art Gallery’s long and rich history.
The new $8.5 wing, funded by the City of Greater Bendigo, the Victorian Government and the Bendigo Art Gallery Foundation and designed by architects Fender Katsalidis, offers twice the exhibition space, which means greater flexibility and scope for the Gallery and more opportunities to display the Gallery’s growing collection.
The launch, a day-long program of free events for all ages, is the first opportunity for the public to view the new extension, as well as recent acquisitions from the collection.
