About the exhibition

This small selection of works from the John Power and Museum Collections was dedicated to the memory of Paul Taylor, who died from an AIDS related illness 17 September 1992.

Paul Taylor’s contribution to contemporary Australian culture was significant – an art critic, curator and editor, Taylor began working in the art world in Australia in the 1980s, and worked in New York for several years before returning to Melbourne. This selection was comprised of artists who were contemporaries of Taylor’s.
