Roundabout° showcases works from the collection of American collectors and art dealers David Teplitzky and Peggy Scott. The couple’s ongoing project involves collecting and commissioning works from seminal and emerging artists from Australasia, the Pacific, Asia, the US, the Middle East, Europe, and Russia—with a strong focus on indigenous work. It is said that the show is designed as a ‘roundabout’, with no single way to navigate it. Roundabout° incorporates two solo shows by Australian Aboriginal artists, Vernon Ah Kee (25 September–14 November 2010) and Tony Albert (Pay Attention, 20 November 2010–16 January 2011). Questions are raised about the Gallery showcasing the collection. But Director Paula Savage says City Gallery’s curators made the initial selection of works, and worked alongside Teplitzky's team refining the final selection and layout. ‘We are wanting to show a remarkable collection that people wouldn't otherwise get to see’, she says.
