Thursday 30 March to Sunday 16 July 2017

The first of three biennial surveys presenting the latest ideas and forms in contemporary Australian art. Three of Sydney’s premiere cultural institutions – the Art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia – have established a major new partnership to present a single curated exhibition across the three venues.
Connecting three of Sydney’s key cultural precincts – The Domain, Redfern and Circular Quay – The National: new Australian art is the only large-scale recurring exhibition in the city focused solely on contemporary Australian art.
Over three editions in 2017, 2019 and 2021, The National will profile a mix of emerging, mid-career and established artists from around the country and practising overseas. New and recently commissioned works encompass a diverse range of mediums, including painting, video, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance.
Exhibition Dates:
Art Gallery of New South Wales: March 30 - July 16.
Carriageworks: March 30-June 25.
Museum of Contemporary Art Australia: March 30 - June 18.
