Here we are
Until 13 October

Artists consider the connections we create with others and how these connections resonate outwards through our lives.

Here we are features new acquisitions for the Gallery’s collection by some of the most compelling women artists at work today. Focusing upon figuration and portraiture, their works present human relationships in all their intricacy, pathos and power.

The title Here we are can also be read as a declaration of artistic purpose. It is a statement that acknowledges the way each artist uses their chosen medium to stake out a place for herself in the world – and in art history.

Exhibiting artists: Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Louise Bourgeois, Candice Breitz, Kushana Bush, Katthy Cavaliere, Tracey Emin, Sue Ford, Deborah Kelly, Kimsooja, Mernet Larsen, Deana Lawson, Rosa Loy, Tracey Moffatt, Wangechi Mutu, Jenny Saville, Dana Schutz, Marie Shannon, Kiki Smith, Justene Williams, Judith Wright, Miwa Yanagi and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

Free admission.

Japan Supernatural
2 November – 8 March

Discover the fascinating world of Japan supernatural, an extraordinary exhibition revealing three centuries of folklore and fantasy in Japanese art. Explore this wildly imaginative realm through more than 180 works from historical master Katsushika Hokusai through to contemporary superstar Takashi Murakami.

Through masterworks from collections worldwide and the Gallery’s own rich holdings, Japan supernatural introduces an astonishing array of phenomenal beings from fiendish goblins through to mischievous shapeshifters. Come face to face with these mysterious creatures in an immersive environment featuring large-scale installations and classic Japanese cinema and animation, alongside miniature carvings, humorous paintings and the vibrant ukiyo-e woodblock prints that define the tradition of the supernatural in Japanese art.

Centred on a monumental installation of painting and sculpture by Takashi Murakami, the exhibition features some of the greatest Japanese artists of the past including Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi and Kawanabe Kyosai, alongside contemporary artists Chiho Aoshima and Miwa Yanagi who update the tradition for our times.

Strong light can damage sensitive artworks. We are keeping light levels low in certain areas and some fragile works on paper will be replaced during the exhibition period.

Tickets: $25 adult | $22 concession | $18 member | $62 family | $12 youth | children under 12 free ($2 transaction fee applies online)
