Join a guided tour of new exhibition Peter Kingston — displaying over 70 works by this unique creative talent — with curators Elise Edmonds and Mathilde de Hauteclocque. This exhibition, which includes prints, artist’s books, sketchbooks and printing plates from across Peter Kingston’s career, is a moving tribute to the late artist.

This tour will meet in the Paintings Gallery (First Floor, Mitchell Building).


Elise Edmonds works in the Collection Acquisition and Curation branch of the Library. With a background in Australian history and museum studies, she has worked with the Library’s maps, pictures and manuscript collections, acquiring, researching and promoting these to a variety of audiences. She has curated several exhibitions highlighting the Library’s nationally significant First World War collections, along with the immersive audio exhibition Dead Central, and Kill or Cure? A taste of medicine.

Mathilde de Hauteclocque works with the manuscripts and oral history team in the Library’s Collection Acquisition and Curation branch. With a background in cultural studies and writing, she has worked in galleries, archives and the Library’s Reader Services branch. She has a special interest in the Library’s rich literary collections and items that give insight into creative processes, such as sketchbooks, scrapbooks, notebooks and letters. Peter Kingston is her first exhibition with the Library.
