London, England: Australia at Royal Academy of Arts
For many years, England has been criticized by Australian art enthusiasts as being stubborn and ignorant to Australian Art. Not since the 1960s has the UK seen an exclusive Australian art exhibition. Well, wait no longer (OK, maybe just a bit longer) because Australia is coming to the Royal Academy of Arts.
Famous works that have never left Australian soil will make the journey to London's Royal Academy for a three month exhibition, called Australia at the Royal Academy. The London exhibition will include over 200 pieces of art from strictly Australian artists from the past 200 years. These works will include contemporary pieces, native Aboriginal works, and classic art produced by early settlers:
"Two hundred works including painting, drawing, photography, watercolours and multimedia will shed light on a period of rapid and intense change; from the impact of colonisation on an indigenous people, to the pioneering nation building of the 19th century through to the enterprising urbanisation of the last 100 years."
This will be the biggest Australian art show to ever grace London and the UK. With works by such artists as John Glover, Charles Meere, and 1940's painter Sidney Nolan, along with many Australian contemporary works, the exhibition will be an excellent event, sure to please.
Photography, video, and sculpture will be among the multitude of exemplary paintings on display at the Royal Academy of Arts’ exhibition. Taking place from September 21, 2013 to December 8, 2013 at London's Royal Academy of Art.
Tickets can be purchased online in advance here, at 14 pounds for Adults, with discounted rates for seniors and children. Kids 12 and under get in free.
