The Committee of The Friends of The Johnston Collection has pleasure in inviting you to an exclusive MEMBERS’ ONLY preview of BEING MODERN | The Annual WILLIAM JOHNSTON His Residence & Collection exhibition-house
This installation will re-present the original arrangement of William Johnston’s collection in Fairhall as it was when it first opened to the public as an exhibition- house in 1990. Using photographs, floor plans and layouts of the innovative arrangement from the archives, Fairhall will be recreated as a “modern” iteration of an English Georgian-inspired domestic interior, just as it was first presented to the public over two decades ago.
The exhibition will continue exploring on the themes underpinning The Johnston Collection, that “Old is New”. BEING MODERN will also consider ideas around modernity and how “Every age thinks it’s the modern age”
This exhibition-house tour is generously supported by The Friends of The Johnston Collection.
