This exhibition of portraits and busts drawn from the University of Melbourne Art Collection, have been selected on the premise that a great portrait is less about achieving a likeness and more about the artistry involved in making a work. This exhibition presents a cross-section of styles, and explores developments in portraiture from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth centuries.
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.
