  The Exhibition:

Federation is the most comprehensive survey of Australian art since the Bicentennial exhibitions of 1988. It juxtaposes familiar icons of Australian art alongside unusual and little-known works to chart the growth of a distinctively Australian culture. It features landscapes and people, wars and celebrations, natural disasters and favourite pastimes.

  • Catalogue: Federation is accompanied by a 270 page, fully-illustrated catalogue, which will retail for $29.95 during the course of the exhibition.
