30 years of wonder at the Johnston Collection

After celebrating being open to the public for over 30 years, it seems fitting to revisit the origin of Fairhall, the exhibition-house, a gift to the people of Victoria by William Johnston.

Learn about the life and career of William Johnston and discover aspects of his collecting interests. You will also be introduced to some of the many artworks, artists and curators who have imagined their own stories in his former house, Fairhall and how it continues to change and renew over time.
This presentation will focus on the life, collection, and legacy of William Johnston (1911-1986), benefactor of Melbourne’s multi-award winning The Johnston Collection.
