ALBERT TUCKER: WHEN DARKNESS FALLS

Masterpieces from the Albert & Barbara Tucker Foundation

Smith & Singer is honoured to present ALBERT TUCKER: WHEN DARKNESS FALLS: Masterpieces from the Albert & Barbara Tucker Foundation.  Curated by Geoffrey Smith, Chairman, Smith & Singer, the exhibition comprises works spanning more the four decades of Albert Tucker's prodigious artistic practice.

In recent times, as the world experiences global disruption on an unprecedented scale, the impact and meaning of Albert Tucker’s imagery has never been more relevant or insightful.  As we navigate within a suddenly unfamiliar terrain of fractured social, economic and political structures, Tucker’s expressive and surreal tableaux, that distort, conflate and convey psychological anguish and alienation, appear (more than ever) to be based on reality rather than the imagined.

Drawn from the personal collection of Albert and Barbara Tucker, the exhibition contains numerous works that have never previously been available for public sale.  Offered on behalf of the Albert & Barbara Tucker Foundation, proceeds from the sale of each work will benefit important social causes, including the protection of wild life and habitat; violence against women; scholarships for disadvantaged people; relief of poverty; and the initiation of social change which goes towards increasing the equal treatment and social acceptance of all people in the community.

ALBERT TUCKER: WHEN DARKNESS FALLS: Masterpieces from the Albert & Barbara Tucker Foundation will be open to the public at 14-16 Collins Street, Melbourne, from 23 November - 17 December 2021, 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
