Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery
2a Conway Street, Fitzroy Square,
London W1T 6BA, UK
An exhibition of paintings and sculpture complimenting the Australia show at the Royal Academy of Arts.
In Australia, man stands in a special and peculiar relationship to the land. The vastness of the terrain and the extremes of the climate create challenges not only for human existence but also for the artistic vision.
Australia: People and Places reveals some of the different artistic responses to this challenge. It gathers together important works by many of the leading twentieth and twenty-first century Australian artists from both ‘European’ and Aboriginal traditions.
The exhibition will provide a rare chance to see paintings, prints, photographs, and sculptures by such celebrated Australian artists as: Sidney Nolan R.A., Arthur Boyd, Fred Williams, David Frazer, David Bromley, John Cato, Clifford Possum, Emily Kngwarreye, Owen Yalanga and Robert Campbell Jr.
The exhibition, curated by Rebecca Hossack, builds upon the gallery’s tradition, sustained over twenty-five years, of exhibiting in London the finest Aboriginal art as well as the most exciting Australian contemporary painting.
