The third iteration of the MPRG’s Collection+ series brings together the work of the late Melbourne based artist Judith Alexandrovics (b. 1938, d. 2020) and contemporary British artist Julian Opie. While stylistically the two artists take different approaches with their art, there are thematic parallels in both artists’ work, specifically the study and depiction of groups of people, movement of pedestrians through transient public spaces, people in the urban environment, the notion of the individual in society and the anonymity of crowds.
