This exhibition includes the work of a diverse group of Australian artists who have each made strong and unique contributions to the development of Australian art. The display indicates the breadth and depth of works in the collection from the second half of the twentieth century. The selection includes works on paper and oil paintings. Included are Ian Fairweather’s gouache, Hell (1950), Vivienne Shark LeWitt’s, The Bloody Chamber (1983), and Gareth Sansom’s large work, Putting the ‘f’ back into art (1987).
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.
