National Gallery of Australia

Ongoing Exhibition

Australian Art

In recognition of the National Gallery’s 40th anniversary, this major display tells wide-ranging and complex stories of Australian art. From the outset it recognises the fundamental importance of First Nations artists and knowledges to Australian cultural life, acknowledging that the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in this land reach back millennia.

The selection of works of art through the galleries sets up conversations across time, place and cultural perspectives. Through multiple forms of expression and media, artists invite us to reflect on personal and shared experiences, often informed by regional, urban or suburban locations as well as by the precious natural resources of this country.
