Foundation of Gold

Gold forms solid blocks in the foundations of Victoria. 150 years ago, our goldfields teemed with people of every nationality. This exhibition celebrates the discovery of gold with artists of many cultures working together. Painters, glass and textile artists, gold and silver smiths have been invited to Australia to work collaboratively with Melbourne artists. This exhibition precedes an international tour.


The ‘twinned’ artists are Makiko Mitsunari (Osaka) and Blanche Tilden; Kin Ki-Ra (Seoul) and Pamela Stadus; Brenda Fajardo (Manila) and Caroline Williams; Eugene Chua Gin-Minn (Singapore) and Simon Cottrell; and Monika Correa (Mumbai) and Georgia Chapman.


Presented by the City of Melbourne in partnership with Asialink and RMIT Gallery.
