GHOSTS FROM THE COLLECTION

Riddoch Collection

7 September - 30 November 2024
King's Floor

Ghosts from the Collection wakes up works from the Riddoch’s storeroom to tell their own stories, to take a deeper look at what is hiding inside or behind these artworks.

Like old houses, paintings are constructions of deep thoughts, dreams and imagination, and they live a life – both in themselves and through others.

Ghosts are no stranger to the world of art. The job of painting has long been to morph the physical stuff of life and dissolve the boundary of our material and ethereal worlds, leaving many a quiet threshold for the ghost to inhabit.

They may be religious, mystic, supernatural, metaphorical or allegorical. They may be commemorations or other worldly visages. Whoever they are and wherever they dwell this exhibition marks their moment to shine.

We acknowledge the Boandik Peoples as the traditional custodians of the land we meet on today. We respect their spiritual relationship with the land and recognise the deep feelings of attachment our First Nations Peoples have with the land.
