A Conspicuous Object – Maitland Regional Art Gallery

The Maitland Exhibition – A Conspicuous Object/The Maitland Hospital
A group exhibition with nine other artists responding to the history and stories about the hospital from 1840 to the present day.  The exhibition presents both familiar and unfamiliar moments, invites reflection, offers challenges, and evokes the complex and layered nature of this object that has peered across Maitland since the 1840’s.  The exhibition also highlights the ways art, history and health can intertwine to tell stories and engage community memories.
The exhibitions opens  16th October and will run to the 6th Feb.  The Opening event has been postponed due to Covid Restrictions  and will now happen early January.
