Talk - Australia
Talk | Royal Academy
Friday 18 October 2013 - 10:45 until 12:00
An introductory lecture in the RA's Fine Rooms on this first major survey of Australian art in the UK for 50 years. Spanning more than 200 years from 1800 to the present day this exhibition seeks to uncover the fascinating social and cultural evolution of a nation through its art. The 200 works including painting, drawing, photography, watercolours and multimedia will shed light on a period of rapid and intense change; from the impact of colonisation on an indigenous people, to the pioneering nation building of the 19th century through to the enterprising urbanisation of the last 100 years.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
