Leaders at some of Sydney’s major arts and culture venues have come together to curate recently released The National 2019 program. The second in a six-year initiative, the exhibition showcases new and commissioned works by emerging, mid-career and established artists, with the aim to portray a large-scale survey of Australian art.
More specifically, The National 2019 aims to explore cutting-edge thoughts and ideas reflective of this specific time.‘We are interested in how new forms of curatorial collaboration can act as a mirror for current national debates,’ MCA co-curators Colothide Bullen and Anna Davis explain.
This ambitious collaborative venture will feature the work of 65 artists across a diverse range of media, and form three distinct exhibitions taking place at the curators’ home institutions; the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Carriageworks.
