Unknown, Untitled

‘Unknown, Untitled’ commemorates 130 years since the laying of the foundation stone for Hawthorn Town Hall, now Hawthorn Arts Centre. Four contemporary artists have created new works based on historical and civic artefacts from the Town Hall Gallery Collection. Sai Wai Foo’s two-dimensional sculptures from folded paper, ek.1 duo Emma Hicks and Katie Louise Williams’ hybrid objects created with items washed up on beaches, and Mathew Greentree’s large-scale photographic work, respond to the creativity and history of the City of Boroondara.
