EXHIBITIONS / Visions of Utopia

​​​​​​​​​3 September - 20 November

Exhibition opening 

Friday 2 September 6.30pm

Gallery 1


This exhibition curated by Andrew Christofides, looks at the work of Australian artists who have pursued an ​art based on a visual language that utilises the pure, or formal, elements of painting. Within Australia this tradition, often termed ‘Non Objective Art’, has been explored by generations of artists over the last eight decades and Visions of Utopia looks at this tradition through historically significant works.

 

Curator’s Floor talk 

Wednesday 7 September 
11am - 12noon 
Andrew Christofides​ will introduce the idea of the non-objective in painting, outline the principles involved, and discuss the works on display within an historic, as well as an Australian context. Free, all welcome.​
