Vivienne Binns' Art and Life exhibition opened last night at LUMA - La Trobe University Museum of Art. Binns is an Australian artist who has worked across a range of media, processes and contexts for over 40 years. For her, art and life are inextricably linked and her exhibition examines the ways in which personal relationships and experiences have influenced her work. The exhibition runs until 26 August and there will be a curator's talk by Dr Penny Peckham at LUMA next Wednesday 11 July at 11 am
Meanwhile, the Menagerie Merveilleuse: curious beasts of Bundoora & beyond exhibition by Sharon West (Artist-in-Residence) at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre opens on Saturday 14 July at 2 pm. The exhibition runs from 6 July - 26 August. From Interiors to Exteriors by Phil Harris (winner of the 2006 Darebin Art Show) will also open on the same day and run from 11 - 29 July.
