The Rennie Ellis Show @ NERAM

The Rennie Ellis Show focuses on Seventies and Eighties
The people and personalities of Australia in the 1970s and 80s are in focus in The Rennie Ellis Show, a major exhibition of works by the iconic photographer Rennie Ellis (1940-2003) that will open at the New England Regional Art Museum at 6.00pm on Friday 19 August 2016.
For Rennie Ellis, the 1970s–90s was ‘a great period of change’; one that now seems a world away. It was a world free of risk, of affordable inner city housing, of social protest, of disco and pub rock, of youth and exuberance. The Rennie Ellis Photographic Archive and Monash Gallery of Art, the home of Australian photography, are proud to present The Rennie Ellis Show, a travelling exhibition of Ellis’s images from this period of great change.
