The World Turns Modern

The World Turns Modern

From the early twentieth century, Australian artists responded to the international movement towards Modernism and Art Deco. With its bold, simplified shapes and emphasis on geometry and line, Art Deco provided the right aesthetic for the times. Comprised entirely of works from the National Collection, this exhibition provides superb examples of the diverse expressions of Art Deco.

A National Gallery of Australia Touring Exhibition.
