Robyn Stacey: as still as life

now open

Come and explore the tantalising world of still life through the lenses of 34 photographers and one magnificent 17th century Baroque painting on loan from the NGV.

Summer Programs

Inspired by the work on display in Robyn Stacey: as still as life we have created two interactive spaces for families and the young at heart:

  • MGA's Atrium space has been turned into a lush green butterfly house! Amongst the hedges is a table full of materials, where you can gather all that you need to make your own beautiful paper butterfly to either add to our flock on display or take home with you
  • Gallery three is now a tabletop photostudio where you can be #as_still_as_stacey and use our collection of props to style and shoot your own still-life masterpiece this summer! Just BYO camera or device

Both of these free activity spaces are available during gallery hours for the duration of the exhibition from now until 3 March 2019. 

Our friends from Wheelers Hill Library will also run two Storytime sessions in the gallery at 10.30am on Friday 11 January & Thursday 17 January 2019. Bring the under 5s in your life and step inside our airconditioned gallery spaces to relax with some singing, stories and a craft activity.
