Robert Baines in Launceston
Friday August 03 2012
Sandra Brown is Object’s Touring Coordinator. She is currently in Launceston installing Robert Baines: Metal at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, and has checked in twice this week to let you know how it is coming along.
Wednesday 1 August:
I am on the road again with one of our touring exhibitions — Robert Baines: Metal. Installing at QVMAG in Launceston’s newly refurbished Royal Park site. What fantastic gallery spaces! The exhibition is going to look great here. Rod, one of their installers, is working on the lighting as I sit here writing. QVMAG has a great team and visitors are really going to enjoy the show in this space. Launceston might be cold but the museum is warm and friendly. I am looking forward to the opening Friday night when Robert Baines will give one of his fascinating talks about his work.
Touring Through Winter
Friday June 29 2012
Winter is definitely not hibernation time here at Object touring, with our touring program back in full swing. After a quiet month or so while the exhibitions are on show around the country, it is now a ‘chock-a-block’ time for touring exhibition installations in NSW, ACT, Tasmania and WA.
Our wonderful installer Robert has just come back from Geraldton, WA, after installing Jeff Mincham: Ceramics in the regional gallery there. After a very successful showing at Bunbury Galleries, the exhibition will be at Geraldton Regional Gallery until 21 September. Then it is off to its final destination at Mornington Peninsula Regional Art Gallery in Victoria.
Menagerie: Contemporary Indigenous Sculpture has just been delivered to the National Museum of Australia in Canberra, where it will be installed in the First Australians Focus Gallery over the next 2 weeks.
