Belle Magazine: Contemporary Arts within the Historical Space

The June / July 2022 issue of Belle Magazine features a glowing write-up about Futures Collective exhibition at Villa Alba Museum, calling it ‘Melbourne Design Week’s most captivating exhibition’.


Sometimes it takes a very particular set of circumstances embracing place, people, ideas and effort to create something evocative and magical that transcends the sum of the parts.


The exhibition was a collaboration between Fiona Lynch of Fiona Lynch Studio and Fiona Lyda of Spence & Lyda. Much of the article outlines the intricate processes the duo underwent to bring the exhibition together.


Future Collectives included works from three Otomys artists: Australian digital printmaking artist Sophia Szilagyi, multidisciplinary artist and sculpture Greg Penn, and contemporary landscape artist Eduardo Santos. Images of the works are featured significantly in the article, demonstrating the impact and intrigue of the contemporary works within the historical space.


The exhibition has been applauded for seamlessly incorporating the modern and contemporary works of art and furniture, within the historical all-encompassing faded splendourof Villa Alba.
