A focused selection of Australian abstraction from the last two decades. The exhibition takes as points of departure geometric, colour field and minimal art, though these categories are often left far behind. Earlier works include a room installation by John Nixon, a classic grid work by Hilarie Mais and a subtly layered painting by Robert Hunter. The exhibition also features a number of works included by artists associated with Store 5 - an artists' run gallery in Melbourne from the late 1980s and early 1990s - including Melinda Harper, Contanze Zikos and Rose Nolan.
