The National: New Australian Art

10:00am to 5:00pm Friday 29 March 2019 (Daily event)

The second of three biennial surveys presenting the latest ideas and forms in contemporary Australian art.

Staged concurrently at three of Sydney’s premiere cultural institutions – the Art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia – The National 2019: new Australian art showcases a total of 65 emerging, mid-career and established Australian artists living across the country and overseas and working in a diverse range of media.

The exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW presents 24 artists who navigate the boundary between chaos and control in work that is by turns political, poetic and personal. It reveals how Australian artists are responding with subtlety and ambition to the times they live in, through artworks that are intricate, complex and often charged with a sense of precariousness.
