The Vizard Foundation Art Collection of the 1990s began as an initiative to support Australian artists through the acquisition, display and promotion of their work. 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. 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 including mass culture, technology, national identity, and gender, through works that epitomise the creative direction of the period. Themes present in the works include: reconciliation, globalisation, the environment, and national and personal politics.
Grounded—visitors to the Potter will need to be in peak condition as you will need to be able to climb the stairs to enjoy the museum’s current offerings on level 1 and 2. The Potter’s lift is currently out of order and advice is that it will take a few days to repair. Although not confirmed we hope to have it back in working order on Friday 24 May. Please plan your visit accordingly. We apologize for the inconvenience.
