All Together:
Meredith Turnbull & Ross Coulter

12 November 2022 - 30 April 2023
Shepparton Art Musuem

Referencing the history of the group portrait from Velazquez’s Las Meninas (1656) to the modern-day family photo, All Together expanded on how we interpret and represent ‘family’ in this collaborative project between the artists and visitors to SAM.

Throughout the exhibition visitors were encouraged to make use of the ‘selfie station’ to self-compose their own ‘awkward family photo’ of themselves and fellow museum-goers, to become part of the expanding understanding of what group portraiture and family can be.
