Graphic Investigation—Prints by Postwar Émigré Artists in Australia
This exhibition presents a selection of works on paper by two generations of European émigré artists who exerted a profound influence on the production, reception, and teaching of printmaking in postwar Australia.
Through their direct and diverse experiences of European art traditions, modernist practices and pedagogical models—including the German Bauhaus—these artists went on to develop networks, associations and educational structures that shaped future generations of local artists.
Drawn from the Geelong Gallery Collection and the Colin Holden Print Collection, Graphic Investigation features the work of artists working across a variety of printmaking techniques as well as artist books.
