Drawn from the University of Melbourne Art Collection, this small-scale focus exhibition includes posters from the Gerard Herbst Poster Collection and prints that depict figures engaged in various forms of sport and movement.
A special feature of the exhibition is a set of seven works by French artist, Marie Laurencin, who was an important figure in the Parisian avant-garde during the first years of the twentieth century.
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.
