Various artists from The Riddoch collection

9 July - 25 October 2020
Main Gallery

As a result of the global pandemic, there are many things about the way we move through the world that have altered. Never have we been so conscious of the places we eat, sleep, work, learn and socialise, as we sheltered inside our homes, dreaming of the outside world we had taken for granted.  

Drawing on the Riddoch Art Gallery’s Collection, Inside/Out looks with heightened awareness at interior and exterior spaces of our lives. Artists working over a century apart have been brought together to express something of our strange experience. Capturing both the mundane moments at home and some familiar scenes of iconic landscapes in our own backyard, this show traverses these spaces inside and outside our homes, finding comfort in our shared common experiences.

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.
