/ Meredith Turnbull Presents her Exhibition 'Closer' at the Ian Potter Museum of Art /


Make sure you get yourself over to the Ian Potter Museum of Art to see Meredith Turnbull's current exhibition, Closer.

"Meredith Turnbull takes a non-hierarchical approach to art making, combining sculpture, photography, decorative objects and jewellery in artworks that invite reflection upon use value and decoration, adornment and excess. In Closer, Turnbull presents an installation of newly commissioned work which responds to the University of Melbourne Art Collection. Turnbull draws from the Collection’s eclectic and vibrant holdings of decorative art to make new forms and display contexts for objects ranging from large-scale wood carvings, glazed earthenware and porcelain, to modernist fine art jewellery. Closer engages with decorative traditions to explore the intersections between visual art, craft and design."

Closer is showing at the Ian Potter Museum of Art until July 1, 2018.
