Working Title: Studio Practice in the RMIT Art Collection

‘The studio is a place in which artists conceptualise, experiment, develop and ultimately produce their artworks. Studio practice is different for each maker, some artists confining themselves to the solitude of their workspaces while others take their work outside to their communities.  Whether artworks are made by individuals or collectives, many inevitably meet a similar fate, eventually leaving the studio for exhibition and the next phase of their lives—in the hands of a buyer or collection, historicised alongside their peers.  

Working Title explores the RMIT Art Collection and unearths a rich history of studio practice at RMIT, revealing notable academics, alumni, methods and collaborations across collecting legacies over the past century.’

Working Title: Studio Practice in the RMIT Art Collection is open 11-5pm Tuesday to Friday and 12-4pm Saturday’s until 27 July at RMIT Gallery, 344 Swanston St, Melbourne.
