The Art Gallery of New South Wales presents Real Worlds, the fourth Dobell Australian Drawing Biennial.

Supported by the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation, this exhibition presents new work by eight contemporary Australian artists who create extraordinary new worlds in drawings of great complexity and invention.

With drawing as the principal medium, the exhibited works evoke distinctive ways of seeing and making sense of the world. For some, it recreates a physical environment, grounded in a deep connection to place or country. For others, it is an invention that springs forth from history, memory and the imagination.

Real Worlds features drawings by Martin Bell, Matt Coyle, Nathan Hawkes, Danie Mellor, Peter Mungkuri, Becc Ország, Jack Stahel and Helen Wright.

Each Biennial has a different curatorial concept and seeks to showcase the vitality and breadth of drawing in contemporary Australian art. Some of the exhibited works from each Biennial are acquired for the Gallery’s permanent collection.

The Gallery will continue to be guided by the NSW Government’s health guidelines. For more information and updates, please visit their website.
