This exhibition brings together some of the most exciting and relevant contemporary artists working in Australia today. Showcasing a range of media and hand picked by the respected Australian curator, Geoffrey Cassidy the exhibition promises to be the perfect insight into a fascinating art world.

This exhibition showcases some of the most original and successful young and mid-career artists from Australia’s contemporary art world. Australian Art is often associated with the landscape, a looming and to some extent defining presence in the Australian psyche, but is not the only story. The works in Australia: Contemporary Voices don’t so much provide an alternative narrative, so much as highlight the many narratives that go to making up the complex, urban, immigrant and sophisticated society that is Australia. The aim is to highlight the quality, originality and diversity of work produced in Australia, informed, certainly by international ideas, but often provincial in the best sense of the word – protected, quirky, speaking with it’s own voice.

Featuring:

Del Kathryn Barton, Lionel Bawden, Kim Buck, Penny Byrne, Adrienne Doig, Nick Folland, Newall Harry, Linde Ivemey, Maria Kontos, Janet Laurence, Sam Leach, Joan Ross, Catherine Rothwell, Alex Seton, Simon Terrill, Julia de Ville and Michael Zavros. This exhibition aims to show the quality, originality and diversity of work currently being produced in Australia.
