Head to a free exhibition of classical paintings and contemporary artworks

This exhibition contrasts some of the Artbank collection's classical landscape paintings against new works created by six Australian contemporary artists. Each artist's practice is varied, creating a collection of responses that explore their personal perspective, its relationship to experience, and how it in turn it is imbued in their work. From Where We Stand explores how artists meditate over the world and then portray it, examining the inseparable relationship between perspective, experience and physicality.

Curated by Artbank director Tony Stephens, the exhibition showcases works from Yvette Coppersmith (this year's Archibald Prize winner), Ricky Emmerton, Anna McMahon, Sean Meilak, Rusty Peters and Lisa Sammut.
