No keeping place for Sydney Aboriginal art collection

Aboriginal Art Directory | 29.08.10

Yet another eviction deadline has passed but Aboriginal artist Gordon Syron and his wife Elaine are still desperately seeking a home for their collection of Aboriginal art, the Keeping Place, one of the largest collections in the country.

Currently housed in an old railway shed in Redfern, with the Syrons living alongside it, the Keeping Place is an incredible collection of contemporary and traditional indigenous art, as well as artefacts, books, photographs and posters.

“People have described walking in here as like walking into a cathedral of Aboriginal art,” Mrs Syron said.
