Die Cuts and Derivations, an expansive installation by Peter Robinson, sparks a collection-based look at how artists investigate and respond to space, through line, materials and improvisation.

With experiences ranging from the intimate to the spectacular, it features many recent acquisitions – such as a colourful manu aute, or bark-cloth kite, made by Nikau Hindin using earth-based pigments, a painting-within-a-painting by Oliver Perkins and a delicately entwined John Pule drawing inspired by his family’s ancestral lands in Niue. The exhibition also provides a new context for other works, including an exquisite selection of historical pencil works and Neil Dawson’s memorable 1979 installation Seascape.

Die Cuts and Derivations is curated by Peter Vangioni, Melanie Oliver, Ken Hall, Felicity Milburn
