Formation is now open.

Celebrating over sixty years of expression and creativity, this free-entry exhibition explores the work of six contemporary artists supported by Arts Access Victoria alongside art from the Cunningham Dax Collection. Formation is a creative collaboration between Arts Access Victoria and The Dax Centre, with artwork being created by Arts Access in direct response to The Cunningham Dax Collection.

Art exhibited includes painting on canvas, watercolour, drawing, objects, glasswork, mural and textiles. The pieces displayed span over 60 years of art making with one of the earliest textile pieces being from the early 1950’s. Due to their fragility it is rare for these older pieces to be exhibited in the gallery and they cannot be shared or reproduced digitally.

Works will be available for purchase by a number of artists supported by Arts Access Victoria including Guler Altunbas, Laurence Flegg, Jac Gelbert, Paul Henry, Adam Knapper, John Puli.

Arts Access Victoria is a nationally renowned organisation dedicated to putting equality at the centre of the arts. They empower artists with lived experience to create work that challenges and extends notions of who is an artist, what is art and for whom is it made.

The Cunningham Dax Collection includes works created at Victoria’s psychiatric hospitals between the 1960’s and the 1980’s. The Collection is the only one of its kind and size in Australia and one of only four in the world.

Opening hours: October 10th through to December 13th, every Wednesday–Friday, 12–5pm. Our launch event will be held on Wednesday 6th November.
