About

John Olsen, who can be seen in the background of this photograph invited Robert Klippel to be part of the 'Direction 1' group exhibition at Macquarie Galleries, Sydney. Klippel showed alongside Olsen, Bill Rose, Eric Smith and John Passmore. This exhibition was claimed (erroneously) by the critic Paul Haefliger as the advent of abstract expressionism in Australia.
