In late March next year Sydney’s major cultural institutions will launch the The National: New Australian Art 2017. In it’s inaugural year, the multi-venue exhibition will present the work of 49 contemporary Australian artists across the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW), Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA).

Blair French, director, curatorial and digital at the MCA stated “This unique collaboration enables us to explore the themes and concerns of artists making work today in a way that a single organisation couldn’t undertake.” All three institutions worked collaboratively to select a range of emerging, mid-career and established artists, whose names were made public earlier this week.

The artists to be presented are Khadim Ali; Zanny Begg; Richard Bell Gordon Bennett; Chris Bond & Wes Thorne; Matthew Bradley; Gary Carsley; Erin Coates. Megan Cope, Karla Dickens, Atlanta Eke, Emily Floyd, Heath Franco, Marco Fusinato, Gunybi Ganambarr, Alex Gawronski, Ghenoa Gela, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Julie Gough, Alan Griffiths, Dale Harding, Taloi Havini, Gordon Hookey, Ronnie van Hout, Helen Johnson, Jess Johnson, Richard Lewer, Peter Maloney, Nicholas Mangan, Karen Mills, Archie Moore, Claudia Nicholson, Tom Nicholson, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran, Nell Rose Nolan, Raquel Ormella, Alex Martinis Roe, Stieg Persson, Elizabeth Pulie, Khaled Sabsabi, Yhonnie Scarce, Keg de Souza, Simon Ward, Justene Williams, Jemima Wyman and Tiger Yaltangki.

The National: New Australian Art 2017 will run from 30 March until 16 July 2017 at AGNSW, from 30 March until 25 June 2017 at MCA and from 31 March until 18 June 2017 at Carriageworks.
