Exhibitions



Hunter Red


26 May – 22 July 2018


The Hunter Red suite of exhibitions represents a collaborative vision shared by Hunter-based institutions: Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery, Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Newcastle Art Gallery and The Lock-Up. This collaborative project, Hunter Red, seeks to defy any one-dimensional view. We are Hunter Reds but ‘red’ is: the earth on which we stand and share; the symbol of celebration and revelry; our flesh and blood; and our political unrest. Each gallery and exhibition examines a different vision of our region. It incorporates voices ignored and marginalised as well as celebrating joy and the fragility of our humanity. The collective challenges audiences to explore all the diverse and innovative exhibitions in this project, to travel between the institutions, engage in a host of varied and exciting public programs and be astounded by the wealth of the combined Hunter collections. Re(A)d Earth is LMCAG’s response.
