Exhibition Review : Review by John McDonald
His heading says it all – The National: three galleries and 48 artists adds up to mostly lacklustre affair.
Print your own masterpieces and digital pens – the brave new world of the museum
Exhibition Review : The National at the Art Gallery of NSW
My reactions? Ernest, many social issues, not much fun, no contemporary photography, installations, some painting, and a feeling that you may have seen much of this before.
Exhibition: Elaine Campaner at Gallery 9
Always an enjoyable viewing, managed to see the latest works by Elaine Campaner – recommended.
