Chris Bond and Yhonnie Scarce have been selected for inclusion in The National: New Australian Art, a new biennial survey presenting the latest ideas and forms in contemporary Australian art across three of Sydney’s premiere cultural institutions – the Art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
The National: new Australian art is the only curated large-scale recurring exhibition in the city focused solely on contemporary Australian art. Over three editions in 2017, 2019 and 2021, The National will profile a mix of emerging, mid-career and established artists from around the country and practising overseas. New and recently commissioned works encompass a diverse range of mediums, including painting, video, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance.
Chris Bond’s work will be featured at Carriageworks and Yhonnie Scarce’s work will be on show at the Art Gallery of NSW. The National runs from 30 March to 16 July 2017.
