Marking the first major survey of Australian art in the UK for 50
years, this exhibition will span more than 200 years from 1800 to the
present day and seeks to uncover the fascinating social and cultural
evolution of a nation through its art.
Two hundred works
including painting, drawing, photography, watercolours and multimedia
will shed light on a period of rapid and intense change; from the impact
of colonisation on an indigenous people, to the pioneering nation
building of the 19th century through to the enterprising urbanisation of
the last 100 years.
