    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.
