Dorrit Black | #TogetherInArt What's in the Box?

May. 19, 2020

What’s in the box? Find out in this Together In Art series, which reveals treasures from behind the scenes of our temporarily closed museum. In this video, assistant curator of Australian art Hannah Hutchison offers a close look at the dynamic prints, drawings and printing blocks of pioneering Australian woman modernist Dorrit Black (1891-1951), whose experiments with the new medium of linocut still emanate optimism and energy. Discover how Black discovered her vision, created her prints, and brought her modern vision from Europe back to Australia.
