The exhibition features the private collection of artist John Nixon, who over the last fifteen years has acquired a ceramic collection of over 500 pieces. This exhibition showcases the incredible work of ceramic artists from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s who were working in and around the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The exhibition demonstrates how one person’s passion, knowledge and dedication to an art form has transformed the everyday act of collecting into a cultural treasure. This exhibition is the second in a series of exhibitions especially dedicated to the art of collecting. Curated by James Lynch, Deakin University
