Recommendations for 2017 spring Canberra visual arts
Here’s a list of exhibitions my recommendations for anyone thinking of visiting Canberra in spring of 2017.
Here’s my list (so far) – there are more shows to see
National Library: DOMBROVSKIS: JOURNEYS INTO THE WILD
Top of the list for any lovers of photography
NGA: Collection Exhibition: Russian Avant-Garde
A small NGA exhibition that surprised me. It is definitely more interesting than as advertised.
NGA: Russian avant-garde – till 29 Jan 2018
National Library of Australia
When visiting the Peter Dombrovskis exhibition at the NLA – don’t miss the small exhibition in the next room.
CHINESE POSTERS 1949-1976
National Library of Australia till 2nd February 2018
NGA Exhibition: Namatjira: Painting Country
Saw this NGA exhibition for a second time – highly recommended.
NGA till 19 November 2017 – click here.
NEIL ROBERTS chances with glass
17 August to 15 October 2017
Curated by: Barbara Campbell and Jane Cush – click here
Various works in many locations – The NGA does not have a dedicated photography gallery – at present there are some very good selections of photography on exhibition but alas they are scattered throughout the building. This makes it almost like a “where’s Wally’ exercise as lovers of the medium wander about the whole gallery trying to spot them. But what is on exhibition does actually make it worth it – if you have the time and energy.
Here’s a gem of a small but wonderful NGA photography exhibition – Mexican Modernism – click here Till 26 November 2017
