Australian Love Stories

Reconnect and reflect with our new major exhibition, Australian Love Stories (in real life!) as we explore love, affection and connection in all its guises. From the enduring to the forbidden, romantic to platonic, the unrequited, obsessive, scandalous or creative. Swoon over more than 200 artworks from across photography, painting, works on paper, small sculpture AND an immersive glass installation.

Think Bob and Blanche, Kath and Kim, Jimmy and Jane Barnes, Nick and Susie Cave, Nell and Kylie Kwong. Think iconic artists like John Brack, Vincent Namatjira, Del Kathryn Barton, Davida Allen, Charles Blackman and more! See old favourites alongside loans from private and public collections and new works commissioned exclusively for the exhibition.
