Behind The Lines 2017: The Year’s Best Political Cartoons - Art Collector

Matt Golding Taking The Lead - The Sunday Age 2017. Courtesy of The Artist and Tamworth Regional Gallery, Tamworth.

Roll up, roll up to Behind the Lines 2017 and marvel at the political cartooning spectacle that is The Three-Ring Circus. Showcasing the year’s best political cartoons, The Three-Ring Circus captures a world where fact and fiction collide and ringmasters, jugglers and acrobats have all stepped into the political Big Top.

From postal votes and citizenship chaos to penalty rates and constitutional recognition, 2017 was a tumultuous year in politics. Curated by Holly Williams, from The Curators’ Department, Sydney for the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House.
