Robert MacPherson Boss Drivers Exhibition is now showing at QAG
Pene has an obsession: he endlessly catalogues boss drovers in portraits that vividly evoke the resilient, determined spirit of the rugged individuals responsible for moving thousands of livestock and teams of stockmen and cooks along the great pastoral stock routes of Australia, travelling over vast distances from station to market, or finding feed and water in times of drought.
Boss Drovers will tour to regional venues in Queensland from January 2019: Dogwood ...
Cross-mending Exhibition is now open at Outer Space!
The term ‘cross-mending’ refers to the archaeological process of piecing together fragments of objects that have been dispersed across a site. Through crossmending, archaeologists can uncover information not only about the fragmented object, but about the history of a specific site.

Sam Cranstoun: Impossible Conversations Exhibition at MoB
Inspired by Vanity Fair’s bitingly satirical 1930s series ‘Impossible Interviews’, nine Brisbane residents shared the conversations they would like to have with their chosen figure from Italian history.
Sam has interpreted these conversations through a series of watercolour paintings.
Because the historical figures are unable to take part in the conversations, Sam’s paintings hover in the space between question and answer. He offers glimpses of the conversations through ...
Love & Desire Exhibition is coming to the National Gallery of Australia this December!
In mid-nineteenth century Britain, a group of rebellious young artists emulated the spirit of early Renaissance painting in protest against the art establishment of the era and society at large. Radically flouting convention, these artists revelled in the use of brilliant colour, meticulous detail and exquisite layering. The Pre-Raphaelites drew inspiration from the great love stories of history and literature, the tempestuousness of lustful entanglements, and the wonder of religious icons. ...
