Bill Henson: Early Works from the MGA Collection
30 July - 26 September 2010
This exhibition provided audiences with the opportunity to view some of the most powerful and beautiful photographs made by one of Australia's best-known contemporary photographers. It featured twenty-nine exquisitely printed examples from many of Henson's major series from the 1970s through to the early 1990s, all drawn from the Monash Gallery of Art (MGA) Collection.
This exhibition offered a rare opportunity for local audiences to experience the diversity and complex materiality of Henson's work first hand, unhindered by the distortions of reproduction, as passionate discussions about Henson's work and what it says about the nature of art are on-going.
