Feeling abstract?
Paintings from the UWA Art Collection, 1950–1990

17 July to 27 November 2021

Feeling abstract? explores abstract painting over a forty year period through works in the UWA Art Collection.

The exhibition features key examples of Australian abstraction of the 20th century and is a unique opportunity to view dynamic, large-scale paintings from the Collection, several of which have been included in major national exhibitions but have not been on public display at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery for several decades.

Curated by Sally Quin, Curator, UWA Art Collection.
