5 September – 11 October
Significant Others introduces artists to a selected pair or ‘other’ (mostly known to each other but sometimes not). At its simplest, artisitc partnerships can be determined by kinship, such as shared interests of father and daughter Hans & Nor aHeysen in landscape and still life, or famed brother and sister illustrators Ruby Lindsay and Norman Lindsay in fantasy narrative. Others declared an artistic partnership, such as colleagues George Lambert and Thea Proctor, life-long partners in a program to transform Georgian Sydney into a cosmopolitan artistic centre, or Frank and Margfel Hinder’s common interest in the dynamics of civic spaces.
