Neue Luxury is a global dialogue on luxury in the 21st century.

Neue Luxury




Anna Schwartz Gallery presents a landmark, large-scale group exhibition of work by over 50 Australian and international artists spanning the 1980s to the present. The exhibition draws from the exhibition histories of four galleries – Melbourne's United Artists (1982—1988), City Gallery (1988—1993), and Anna Schwartz Gallery, in both Melbourne (1993—present) and Sydney (2008—2015). Many works directly engage the political and social contexts of their time, and are redefined by the present tense.

Never the same river is an exhibition of works of art across timeframes, acknowledging that the ways in which artists engage ideas and produce work does not necessarily follow a linear path. The exhibition will be designed in collaboration with award-winning architecture firm, Denton Corker Marshall, who designed the gallery at 185 Flinders Lane in 1993.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a public program of events, including the re-presentation of an historical performance by Shelley Lasica. The gallery will also host the Melbourne launch of Doug Hall’s book Present Tense: Anna Schwartz Gallery and Thirty-Five Years of Contemporary Australian Art.

    The story of the pelican operates as an evocative microcosm of John Wolseley’s career: in the winter of 2014, the artist was camped in a swampy area just south of Mataranka the Northern Territory, Australia nearing the conclusion of six weeks spent creatively immersed in the wilderness.
