‘No.1 Neighbour: Art in Papua New Guinea 1966-2016′ presents work by artists from Papua New Guinea created from the mid-1960s, through Independence in 1975, until today. The exhibition focuses on the vibrancy of contemporary artistic expression, a direction that is unique in Australia. A key conceptual thread within ‘No.1 Neighbour’ is the importance of the ongoing relationship between Australia and Papua New Guinea with projects profiling ongoing creative relationships between communities and individuals.
‘No.1 Neighbour’ is supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation and through the Australian Government through the Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
