NGA | Australian Print Workshop

Place Made

This exhibition celebrates the work produced at the Australian Print Workshop between 1981 and 2002. It is a snapshot of the involvement of Australian artists in the production of prints and their concerns stylistically, technically and politically during these two decades.

In 2002 the National Gallery of Australia acquired the Australian Print Workshop second archive of workshop proofs, a collection of over 3,500 prints by artists Australia wide. The acquisition was made possible through the assistance of the Gordon Darling Australasian Print Fund.

The exhibition place made: Australian Print Workshop includes 93 works by 57 artists. It opens at the National Gallery of Australia on 31st January 2004 and will then travel nationally.

The 5th Australian Print Symposium will be held at the National Gallery of Australia on 2nd, 3rd & 4th April 2004. It will coincide with the major exhibition place made: Australian Print Workshop.

Landscapes in Sets and Series

The landscape has been the prime subject matter for Australian artists, both indigenous and those who have come to Australia since 1788. Paintings and prints by artists such as John Glover, Eugene von GuÉrard, Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Sidney Nolan, John Olsen and Fred Williams have formed the popular conception of the Australian landscape. It is only in recent years that the importance of Aboriginal depictions of the landscape has been acknowledged and their images have become part of the popular imagination.

Landscapes in sets and series focuses on prints produced by Australian artists from 1960s to the 1990s. As well as presenting prints of the Australian landscape the exhibition also represents the work of two artists - Janet Dawson and Salvatore Zofrea, who have found their subject matter in foreign landscapes.
