Blurring the notion of private and public, this exhibition showcases major art works from the Justin Collection by Australian and international artists. The Justin Collection was developed with the vision of Melbourne architect Charles Justin, who with his wife Leah, shared a desire to make their art collection accessible to the wider community.

Curated by Diane Soumilas, the exhibition provides an insight into the Justin Collection, which has developed around a collecting theme that broadly addresses perceptions of space in contemporary practice, geometric abstraction, architectural and fractal patterning, urban spaces and the virtual.

This exhibition will feature contemporary video, digital prints, paintings, photography, sculpture and drawings by leading and emerging Australian and international artists including Stephen Bram, Daniel Crooks, Peter Daverington, Stephen Haley, Ash Keating, Lara Merrett, Penelope Davis, Daniel von Sturmer, Jiang Pengyi and Chun Kaifeng.

Opening address by Director Lyons Architects and owner and designer of Lyon Housemuseum Corbett Lyon
Welcome by his Worship, the Mayor Cr Neil Pilling
