The collection consists of 124 works by fifty-one Australian artists. The artworks reflect some of the prevailing issues of the 1990s, a period of shifting cultural conditions involving an expanding field of practitioners and media.

    Themes present in the works include reconciliation, globalisation, the environment, identity, and national and personal politics. This exhibition includes a selection of work from this popular collection.
