Important new works for TMAG
For a limited time, come along to check out two artworks ear-marked to become part of TMAG's collection - and even make a donation to help with the acquisitions.
Raquel Ormella’s 130 Davey Street (2005) and Imants Tillers’ In these latitudes (2011) have been identified by TMAG curators as works that are significant to Tasmania, and important additions to the State Collection.
The Foundation of TMAG is generously assisting with the acquisition, but public contributions are sought to help with the purchases.
Imants Tillers is one of Australia's most prominent artists, having represented Australia at the Venice Biennale back in 1986. Tillers’ painting In these latitudes responds directly to Tasmania’s complex Colonial history. Raquel Ormella’s permanent marker drawings on 10 white boards create a portrait of the interior of the Wilderness Society headquarters 130 Davey Street; and the organisation that has become synonymous with the conservation movement in Tasmania.
Raquel Ormella’s 130 Davey Street and Imants Tillers’ In these latitudes will be on display at TMAG until mid-April, so come along and see them for yourself - and perhaps even make a donation.
