The National 2019: New Australian Art
Co-curated by Anna Davis & Clothilde Bullen
March 31 - June 23
Museum of Contemporary Art

The exhibition presents the work of 24 Australian artists from major cities, regional areas and remote communities.

Connections between the artists’ practices emerged out of the national research led by the exhibition co-curators. The MCA’s exhibiting artists reflect urgent contemporary concerns, many pose questions around hierarchies of power and the ways in which different groups are represented, while other artists create new rituals and experiment with improvisational processes.
