Being the director of a contemporary gallery for over 30 years, Brenda May has inevitably amassed an impressive collection of artworks. Director's Cut is an invitation to view a selection of these acquisitions, purchased within a strict budget and curated by Brenda herself. It is an opportunity to see the works that she has chosen to live with, outside of the regular rotation of exhibitions that surround her every day at work. While a number of the artworks are by artists that Brenda has exhibited, many have also been purchased from other galleries and from unrepresented artists' studios. Despite there being no central theme to her collection, certain threads have emerged over the 30 plus years, such as an interest in process and an overwhelming desire to support living Australian artists, no matter what country they may have originally come from. Bringing the private into the public eye, this exhibition will put her personal tastes on view.
