This exhibition is the second of two exhibitions designed to address recent initiatives in contemporary Australian painting. It’s a beautiful day: new painting in Australia 2 introduces painterly narrative and representational practises that are different from the earlier interests of artists in the 1990s and 1980s. Linking artists across generations, the exhibition seeks to engage with, and describe, the difficult and remarkable adventure of contemporary painting.
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.
