Artist Adam Pyett will be included in the upcoming exhibition at Bendigo Art Gallery, opening on March 28 – June 25.
Australiana: Designing a Nation surveys the iconography of Australiana in art and design through key chapters in our history through to the present day, identifying a distinct tradition that has reflected—and changed with—popular notions of Australian identity and style. Encompassing the rich expressions of culture and connection to Country of First Nations artists and designers, to explorations of national and personal identity by others, Australiana illuminates a local vernacular.
Curated by and presented exclusively at Bendigo Art Gallery in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria, this expansive exhibition showcases works by over 200 artists and designers, including many Australian masterpieces. Spanning the visual and decorative arts as well as photography, illustration, furniture, jewellery, moving image and fashion, this exhibition charts Australia’s social and popular cultural history.
