By the Book
By the Book draws upon Nick Earls' non-fiction novella, A New Perspective, to present an immersive exhibition experience. The exhibition brings the book to life, with an audio book recording guiding visitors through artworks, photographs and artefacts referred to in the text. By the Book also features a new collaborative sound work produced by artist Lawrence English, which draws on field recordings from the landscapes that Robinson painted.
Audio book: In keeping with COVIDSafe guidelines, visitors are required to use their own smartphones and headphones to access the audio book recordings.
