Sunrise is an exhibition of large-scale paintings and works on paper that reflects the diversity of image-making in the abstractionist movement in Australian art from the late 1960s to the 1980s. This exhibition includes artists who each made significant contributions to abstractionism. Alun Leach-Jones’ painting Noumenon XLIV. In nature there is neither right nor left ..., 1971, from his well-known Noumenon series is included. Leach-Jones was an artist whose work was shown in The Field exhibition which was held at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1968. By the mid-1980s, abstractionism was confronted by increased interest in conceptualism that led to further change and development in Australian art.
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.
