‘There is no abstract art…’
The title of this exhibition is taken from the Pablo Picasso quote: ‘There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality.’ ‘There is no abstract art…’ explores the notion that all artworks represent something, whether an object from the world, an idea or an intent.
Drawn from the DCC Permanent Collection, this exhibition includes works by Australian artists ranging from the 1970s to the 21st century, who engage with abstract expressionism, conceptualism and geometric abstraction.
