Artbank’s second exhibiton at their new premises in Waterloo, Sydney, is Sealed Section. Delving into the Artbank collection, Sealed Section reveals works that canvas the topic of impolite dinner conversation: sex, politics and religion.

Underneath these controversial topics is a consideration of the complexities of human relations and the human condition. Curator Miriam Kelly compiles works of a rich and diverse group of artists, aiming to highlight the strength of contemporary art and its potential to elicit responses to the key issues of our time.

Artbank was founded in 1980 by the Australian government in an effort to celebrate contemporary Australian art. Alongside events and artist showcases, Artbank offers Australians the opportunity to lease contemporary artworks from a 9,000 strong collection.

The event will run between 28 November 2014 and 7 February 2014. More information is available
