Housed at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, the Vizard Foundation Art Collection of the 1990s consists of 124 works by fifty-one Australian artists.
The collection addresses key theoretical issues in contemporary art, exploring artists’ ideas about mass culture, technology, national identity and gender through works that epitomise the creative direction of the 1990s.
Now open, The world is not a foreign land brings together work by Timothy Cook, Djambawa Marawili, Ngarra, Rusty Peters, Freda Warlapinni and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu. Crossing three geographically and culturally distinct regions—the Tiwi Islands, the Kimberley, and North-eastern Arnhem Land—each artist presents sometimes strikingly different perspectives on what constitutes Indigenous contemporary art.
