Victoria Reichelt: La Trobe Art Institute
La Trobe Art Institute Senior Curator Kent Wilson has selected Victoria Reichelt
’s meticulous and stunning works into the show Survival Bias. The exhibition presents the work of five Australian artists who explore different aspects of how institutions deal with art and artefacts – the collection, presentation and care of these important and sometimes contested images and objects. The exhibition provides a timely insight into the nature of collecting by the administrative bodies who hold some of our community’s most valuable cultural assets. Reichelt’s ‘back-of-house’ paintings reflect on the ways in which institutions administer the care of their collections.
