Comprising 11 new linocut prints, along with their metal-framed set of blocks, Invisible Stories: Meditations on Port Essington is Benjamin Armstrong‘s most recent solo exhibition at Tolarno since Conjurers in 2012.
The linocut series relates to the Australian historian and multi-award winning author Mark McKenna’s book From the Edge: Australia’s Lost Histories (2016). McKenna’s book explores the central drama of Australian history: the encounter between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. The exhibition is part of the Melbourne Art Fair’s Melbourne Art Week program from Tuesday 31 July – Sunday 5 August.
Benjamin Armstrong is on view until 18 August.
