The second part of this exhibition series explores the legacies between the original and hybrid forms of abstraction in relation to contemporary practice. Current tendencies have opened-up the arena of abstraction prescribing narrative and meaning with interconnections – Western Modernism and Aboriginal art shaping different approaches that have brought abstraction to the fore once again.
The Macquarie University Art Gallery offers regular, changing exhibition programs to engage audiences from all walks of life.
