William Robinson ‘Genesis’ Exhibition, Paris 2018

In News January 17, 2018

genesis textEuropean audiences will have the opportunity to view rarely seen works by William Robinson alongside some of Robinson’s most notable and significant pieces, spanning from the late 1970s to early 2000s. William Robinson: Genesis will be exhibited in France in January 2018 before returning to Australia to be exhibited at the S.H Ervin Gallery, Sydney, in July 2018.

The exhibition explores the rich experimental spirit and inimitable mastery of Robinson’s works on paper to show that, rather than being a minor interest, this medium has contributed greatly to the development of his contemporaneous canvases.

Despite Robinson’s substantial oeuvre spanning five decades and being collected by the Metropolitan Museum, New York, as well as many private international collections, Genesis is the first major international exhibition of the artist, now aged 83.

Curator: Vanessa Van Ooyen

The exhibition is accompanied by a second edition bilingual catalogue.

Exhibition Dates:

25 January–20 March 2018
