Colony: Australia 1770–1861 is a comprehensive survey of works of art created in, or depicting, Australia between the late 18th century and the early 1860s.

In a direct dialogue, Colony: Frontier Wars explores the period of colonisation in Australia from 1788 onwards and its often devastating effects on First Peoples. By bringing together different understandings of our shared history, this exhibition offers a pathway towards recognition.

In an exclusive viewing opportunity, Members are invited to explore both exhibitions after hours.
