General Assembly - Canberra brooches


Urban Suburban

Canberra Museum and Gallery
7 March 2015 – 21 June 2015
Comprised entirely of works from the Canberra Museum and Gallery visual arts collection, this exhibition explores urban and suburban Canberra. The works examine Canberra as a town and a city independent of the national monuments that define it as the Nation’s Capital. From black-and-white photographs of the city from the 1960s through to the work of contemporary artists examining life in the suburbs, the exhibition reveals the rituals and experiences that enrich life in Canberra, and discovers thematic links between the diverse works in the Collection. The exhibition encompasses a range of media including printmaking, photography, painting and sculpture.

A series of General Assembly- Canberra brooches by Phoebe Porter and Blanche Tilden are included in the exhibition.
