Welcome
 
The RENNIE ELLIS Show
27 March - 24 May 2015
HRAG JUBILEE HALL 21 ROBERTS AVENUE

The Rennie Ellis Show highlights some of the defining images of Australian life from the 1970s and ‘80s. This exhibition of over 100 photographs provides a personal account of what Ellis termed ‘a great period of change'. The photographs explore the cultures and subcultures of the period; AC/DC and punk rock; cheap petrol and coconut oil; and provide a strong sense of a place that now seems a world away; a world free of risk.

A travelling exhibition presented by the Rennie Ellis Photographic Archive and Monash Gallery of Art.

The present and the future – HRAG Jubilee Hall

In 2009 the Federal and Victorian governments each announced $5 million in funding toward the redevelopment of the Horsham Town Hall to co-locate the performing arts and visual arts. To achieve this ambitious project HRAG has relocated to Jubilee Hall for the duration of the project.
While at Jubilee Hall we will not be able to display the Horsham Regional Art Gallery Collection. It will be stored under museum conditions while we work on better understanding, the Mack Jost Collection of Australian Painting and Works on Paper, our nationally significant collection of Australian Photography, and our collection of works that document the Wimmera.
Our exhibition program at this time will, continue to bring the best in Australian visual culture to Horsham, explore what it is to be a regional art gallery, explore artists that are held within our collection, experiment with what an exhibition is, and present the work of leading practitioners from our region.
Join us at Jubilee Hall as we experiment and get ready to represent the Collection in our renovated home in Wilson Street late 2015.
