KIRBY IN INDIGENOUS ART ROLE

Aboriginal Art Directory | 20.08.10

Former High Court justice Michael Kirby has announced he will become a patron of the Keeping Place Indigenous art collection.

The collection, consisting of more than 1000 works by indigenous artists collected by the painter Gordon Syron and his wife, photographer Elaine Pelot-Syron, has been looking for a permanent home since 2008 when the couple were told they would have to vacate the Redern railway shed the collection is currently housed in to make way for the redevelopment of the area.

Kirby, along with co-patron Craddock Morton, a former director of the Australian National Museum, hopes to raise private and government support so the collection can be purchased and placed on permanent display to the public in a new home.
