London's Royal Academy of Arts in collaboration with the National Gallery of Australia is staging the most comprehensive exhibition of Australian art in Britain for 50 years.

The exhibition spans from 1800 to the present day and comprises some 200 works including painting, drawing, photography, watercolours and multimedia. Viewed collectively the works capture the intense social, industrial and cultural changes seen by modern Australia — from colonisation to urbanisation; they also provide an insight into the impact of Austalia's landscape on its art.

The show includes the work of internationally-recognised Australian artists including Sidney Nolan, Fred Williams or Arthur Boyd, as well as Indigenous Australian artists such as Rover Thomas and Emily Kame Kngwarreye, and contemporary artists such as Shaun Gladwell and Tracey Moffatt.

The Daily Telegraph describes the exhibition as "detailed, comprehensive, omniscient, in places beautiful."

Sat-Thurs 10.00-18.00. Fri 10.00-22.00
