"2004: Emerging Trends in Contemporary Australian Art"
2004-06-08 until 2004-09-12
National Gallery of Australia
Canberra, AC, AU Australia

For more than two years, a team of curators has sought out artists, new media workers and writers to map emerging trends in contemporary Australian art, cinema, video and digital media. The team found artists and writers talking about collaboration, community, obsolescence, waste and justice. The result is a partnership between two Victorian cultural institutions, with an incredible 150 art works in the NGV exhibition alone. Never before have so many works from such varied media come together in one exhibition in Australia.  2004 represents one of the most ambitious surveys of contemporary Australian art and culture in recent history.  2004 includes a substantial proportion of art and new media made outside Sydney and Melbourne with artists coming from every state and territory in Australia.  2004 is a major collaborative project between the NGV and ACMI, conceived to explore the breadth and diversity of visual culture as it is now being practised in Australia.

2004 - unbounded by media or thematic parameters - shows how artists, crafts workers, game-designers, networked media creators, architects and moving image makers are confronting rapid change in new and old media. It draws individual artists into creative dialogue with each other, with the public, and with our culture.

2004 is a provocative and surprising exhibition that will stimulate debate and discussion within the community about the changing nature of visual culture in Australia today. With a cross-generational selection of artists from all over Australia, the inclusion in  2004 of works across all art forms and media is unparalleled in any exhibition in this country. The audience will be inspired, intrigued, challenged and amazed by the diversity and brilliance of Australia's visual artists." Frances Lindsay, Deputy Director (Australian Art) National Gallery of Victoria
