From Friday 17 September 2021
HG:60 commemorates the diamond anniversary of the Hamilton Gallery, which opened in 1961.
Unearth some of the most significant objects from the gallery's 9,000+ collection, specially curated into one free exhibition that unveils our unique strengths and most acclaimed artists.
Nine scholars, curators and academics from across Australia have examined and researched four key collection areas of the Hamilton Gallery; European Art, Decorative Arts, Australian Art and Asian Art.
As varied as it is impressive, HG:60 includes paintings, ceramics, sculptures, glass, porcelain, works on paper and other curious treasures.
Alongside this exhibition, the Gallery has undertaken the ambitious task of creating a collection publication; a remarkable coffee table book highlighting the exhibition curators' favourite collection pieces.
Discover the publication and the exhibition at the Hamilton Gallery from 17 Sept, when we're again welcoming visitors.
HG:60 celebrations will also include a full-day Symposium, conservator talks, guided tours and a gala dinner, to take place when restrictions allow for the celebration HG:60 deserves. Join our mailing list to be kept up to date!
Exhibition entry is free, with the Gallery open 7 days.
During Victoria’s lockdown, we have given the Gallery a fresh facelift, have developed new spaces including a Gallery Shop and Kids Space, and installed an all abilities lift for access to the first-floor galleries.
We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors to re-discover Hamilton Gallery!
