9th December 2022 – 16th April 2023
The first major retrospective exhibition of Peter Tyndall, this exhibition examines the artist’s rigorous studio practice spanning 50 years. Tyndall’s expansive works contemplate the fundamental questions about the construction of meaning. Tyndall interrogates how art, language, presence and absence operate in relation to one another in comprehending the world around us.
Reflecting on his unwavering commitment to this way of seeing the world, Tyndall created a unique set of symbols to describe his philosophical framework where he structured his entire artistic practice. The exhibition demonstrates Tyndall’s process from making art, innovation, and life-long dedication to insatiable productivity.
Featuring over 200 works encompassing the entire museum, the exhibition includes paintings, drawings, correspondence art, and unseen works ranging back to the 1970s. The exhibition draws from the University of Melbourne’s significant collection alongside artworks on loan from national institutions and private collections.
