Artbank: Celebrating 25 Years of Australian Art

November 2007

An Artbank touring exhibition sponsored by the Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts and Visions of Australia.

23 November 2007 to 3 February 2008

Artbank, the Australian Government art rental initiative, is at the forefront of collecting contemporary art and craft from Australia's emerging and established Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists.

Formed in 1980, Artbank celebrates a quarter of a century by touring significant artworks acquired from each year of its operation: Artbank: Celebrating 25 Years of Australian Art includes examples of contemporary painting, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art, glass, photography and sculpture. The 42 exhibited works form a distinctive snapshot of the recent art and craft produced in Australia and highlight the significant cultural asset that Artbank has become.

Paintings form a large component of the collection and the exhibition, reflecting both the suitability of these (generally) two-dimensional works for rental clients, as well as the significant standing of this medium in the history of Australian art. Examples of figurative and abstract painting include works by John Brack, Richard Larter, Philip Wolfhagen, William Robinson, Elwyn Lynn and Melinda Harper.

Artbank was among the first institutions to acquire the work of Indigenous artists, and has, through its 25 years of operation, continued to support the practice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists: from traditional paintings by Djawida Nadjongorle, Willy Tjungurrayi, John Mawurndjul, Wukun Wanambi and Kitty Kantilla that depict Indigenous stories or ceremonies, to works by urban Indigenous artists including Tracey Moffatt, Judy Watson, Robert Campbell Jnr, Ian Abdulla and Danie Mellor, whose practices include less traditional media and iconography, yet also address issues relating to Aboriginal history and identity. A culturally significant headdress by Torres Strait Islander artist Ken Thaiday Snr is also exhibited.

A range of three-dimensional works are exhibited including glass forms by collaborative artists Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott, ceramics by Les Blakebrough and sculptural works by Joel Elenberg, Lionel Bawden, Bronwyn Oliver and Louise Weaver. Photographs by Tracey Moffatt, Rosemary Laing, David Stephenson and Ben Morieson are also displayed.

Geelong Gallery provides the final opportunity for Victorian audiences to view Artbank: Celebrating 25 Years of Australian Art.
