The Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Galleries display the Gallery’s collection of Australian art from the European occupation of the continent to the 1970s. The galleries are arranged in chronological order, but they reveal the multiple, and often contradictory, stories characterising the history of Australian art. Far from being one grand narrative, this story encompasses a series of vignettes embracing different perspectives, personalities, landscapes and cities, and is conveyed through diverse works, including paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, ceramics and furniture.
