This exhibition chronicles the development of modernism in Australia from 1940 to 1980, showcasing the stylistic diversity of modernism in Australian art.

Drawn from Rockhampton Art Gallery’s remarkable collection, CREAM explores the post-Second World War art centres of Melbourne and Sydney, but also presents Brisbane as an alternative city to explore new ideas in modern art. Artists include Sidney Nolan, John Perceval, Arthur Boyd, Charles Blackman, Margaret Olley, Fred Williams, John Brack, Lloyd Rees, Jon Molvig, Grace Cossington Smith, William Robinson and Russell Drysdale.

The exhibition recognises the contribution of the Australia Council and also celebrates former Mayor Rex Pilbeam and the people of Rockhampton, whose support of the Gallery has built one of regional Australia’s most enviable collections.
