The photograph and Australia

Reflecting an evolving image of Australia from the 19th century onwards, this exhibition investigates how photography was harnessed to create the idea of a nation. We are reminded of the sense of wonder that the photograph can still induce for its ability to capture the world and the imagination. You will see works from artists such as Harold Cazneaux, Olive Cotton, Max Dupain, Charles Bayliss, Carol Jerrems and Tracey Moffatt among many others.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art

Including Our spirits lie in the water and Ronnie Tjampitjinpa

For centuries artists have handed on cultural knowledge to successive generations and, with this rich tradition, forged contemporary expressions to mark time. This display at the Gallery celebrates Indigenous Australia’s cultural heritage; stories, ceremonies and ancestral beings depicted in many of the works are testament to the oldest culture in the world. You will experience desert paintings created by family groups living on remote outstations, bark paintings of the saltwater people of coastal communities as well as contemporary new media art.
