Featuring selected works from the TarraWarra Museum of Art collection, this exhibition of abstract paintings and sculptures is timed to coincide with the Hilarie Mais exhibition.Modern Currents features a group of abstract works that can be loosely grouped into geometric, pattern, colour field and conceptual abstraction. Many of the artists appeared in the landmark The Field exhibition, held at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1968, including Michael Johnson, Clement Meadmore, John Peart and Sydney Ball – an exhibition that ushered in a new era in Australian abstract painting. At this time, artists eschewed narrative references in painting, and instead created a visual dialogue between form, colour, line and pattern.
