Exhume the grave—McCubbin and contemporary art

Saturday 14 August to Sunday 28 November 2021

Frederick McCubbin’s enduringly popular narrative paintings set within the Australian bush have been the inspiration for post-modernist interpretations by contemporary Australian artists. Drawing largely from the Gallery’s permanent collection, this exhibition brings together works by Juan Davila, Jill Orr, Polixeni Papapetrou and Anne Zahalka that re-interpret key paintings by McCubbin and recurring themes in his work through the lens of cultural diversity and feminism.
