Many of us inherit objects handed down from generation to generation, some ordinary or banal, some functional, others impractical, and some rare, precious and irreplaceable. Irrespective of their properties, they all carry inherit meaning, having been deemed worthy of preservation and appreciation by us, as individuals.

Future Inheritance explores the power of objects, the stories they hold and the ways in which they transfer ideas and values, from one generation to the next. If we were to leave an object behind for a loved one – what would it look like and what is the significance of that object; emotional, historical, cultural or otherwise?

The exhibition showcases the works of 20 artists, with new work commissioned for this exhibition.

Future Inheritance opens Thursday 25th March 2021 12pm.

This is a covid safe event. In order to keep each other safe we ask that you comply with Victorian Government regulations regarding mask wearing, hygiene practises and social distancing. If you are feeling unwell or exhibit any symptoms on the day please do not attend.
