This exhibition features twenty-nine exquisitely printed examples from many of Henson’s major series from the 1970s through to the early 1990s, all drawn from MGA’s collection.

Passionate discussions in Australia, especially the media, about Henson’s work and what it says about the nature of art are ongoing. Bill Henson: early work from the MGA collection is a rare opportunity for audiences to experience the diversity and complex materiality of Henson’s work first hand, unhindered by the distortions of reproduction.

The development of this exhibition was assisted through NETS Victoria’s Exhibition Development Fund (EDF), supported by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria and the Community Support Fund.
