20/20: Shared Visions

40 years of Contemporary Australian Art

Artbank Sydney
222 Young Street Waterloo, NSW

 

A dense web of connections stretches across the Artbank collection. The artworks held within our stores tell stories of familial connection, intergenerational inspiration, shared experiences and convictions and evolving practices. This exhibition presents 20 pairs of works that illuminate these relationships and illustrate the wonderfully diverse landscape of Australian contemporary art.

These pairings bring up stories from the collection that may surprise you, or be so obvious they greet you like an old friend. But we also encourage you to look across the room, and see the influences and inspirations that bounce from each artwork to the next, between what is only a small selection of exceptional Australian artists looking to express something about their past, their present and their hopes for the future.

This exhibition celebrates the success of Artbank as a government program that directly supports living Australian artists, through the purchase of their works and making that work accessible, in its 40th year of operation. Artbank has grown to be one of the largest and most diverse collections of contemporary Australian art in the world and the unique leasing scheme brings these works to the public in boardrooms, foyers and homes across the country.
