The Plot Thickens: Narratives in Australian Art

July 17th, 2004 to September 26th, 2004

Curated by Kendrah Morgan

Through the framework of ‘the narrative’, The Plot Thickens: Narratives in Australian Art presents a survey of artworks by key figures in Australian art spanning from the historical to the contemporary. The stories told in these works, whether based on fact or fiction, range from the documentary to the fantastical, the biblical to the mythological, the universal to the personal and beyond.They traverse a wide spectrum of cultural, social and political issues and experiences, and many have played a role in the construction of our national, cultural and postcolonial identity.
