Eureka! Artists from Australia
This exhibition of contemporary Australian art took place jointly at the Serpentine Gallery and the ICA.
This exhibition was the first major Australian art show since 1963. The exhibition title referred to the Eureka Stockade miners, who refused to pay licensing fees for excavating in 1854.
The Serpentine Gallery’s half of the show focused on photography, sculpture, and painting. Sue Grayson selected the artists for the Serpentine whilst in Australia.
