Mildura Revisited Sculptures exhibited 1961-1978 (5 Sept 2014 - 26 Jan 2015)

Mildura revisited : sculptures exhibited 1961 - 1978, curated by renowned writer Ken Scarlett, will be this year's blockbuster exhibition.

Through the Mildura sculpture events of the 1960s and 70s, Mildura Arts Centre Gallery Directors Ernst van Hattum and Tom McCullough were instrumental in establishing Mildura as the site for artistic innovation; it promoted experimental sculptural practices and had a major impact on the development of Australian sculpture.

To compliment the numerous works from MAC's own collection, the exhibition will include artworks loaned from sculptors, private and public collections. Never before seen photographs from Scarlett's own archive of ephemeral works, site specific installations and performances will also be displayed.

An Education Resource Guide has been developed for schools. The guide provides relevant information and aims to broaden students' knowledge and understanding of the Mildura Sculpture Triennials. For more details and to keep up to date with latest news from Mildura Revisited click here.
