AGNSW Contemporary Collection Projects

Despite routine declarations of its decline, abstract painting is an urgent and vital mode of artmaking that seems to exist in a state of constant reinvention.

This display of contemporary abstract paintings focuses on unconventional and experimental approaches to the age-old discipline of painting.

Drawn largely from the Gallery’s collection, the exhibition includes artworks by Daniel Buren, Morris Louis, Judy Millar, Dona Nelson, Sigmar Polke and Robert Rauschenberg among many others.
