John Curtin Gallery Director Chris Malcolm said the exhibition is an wonderful opportunity to exhibit works that show the Director’s true vision for the Collection.

“The selection of works on show are very personal, so of course Directors’ Cut is more like three separate and distinct exhibitions featuring a diversity of art forms. But they say a lot about the Director who selected them,” said Mr Malcolm.

DIRECTORS’ CUT runs until Sunday 8 July.
