William Robinson:
By the Book


By the Book draws upon Nick Earls' non-fiction novella, A new perspective, to present an immersive exhibition experience. The exhibition brings the book to life, with an audio book recording guiding visitors through artworks, photographs and artefacts referred to in the text. By the Book also features a new collaborative sound work produced by artist Lawrence English, which draws on original recordings of Robinson playing the piano and field recordings from the landscapes that Robinson painted.

This exhibition is at the William Robinson Gallery in Old Government House.

Guest curator: Nick Earls
