E. Phillips Fox, Lamplight, c. 1911, oil on canvas, 188.5 x 229.5 cm. The University of Melbourne Art Collection. Gift of Mrs E. Phillips Fox 1939

This exhibition continues the Ian Potter Museum of Art’s quest to explore new approaches to the long-term display of the University of Melbourne Art Collection. Rather than a selection based on theme, collection, or historical period, this exhibition includes key artworks that have been selected as the most impressive and valuable.
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.
