How do artists help us understand what it means to be Australian? Discuss a range of works by artists in the National Gallery collection, whose perspectives help us think about the diverse stories that shape our identities. This program draws together works of art of various mediums to consider ideas including First Nations histories and cultures, colonisation and its impact, migration of people to Australia and Australia’s interconnections with Asia.
