Informed by technological, social, environmental, political and historical events that have occurred since the original work’s creation, artists in the exhibition revisit interpretations of Australian and European histories through the lens of contemporary culture.

Working across mediums of performance, sound, film, painting and textiles, historic and contemporary artworks will be reframed in a series of installations throughout the contemporary and heritage courts of the Gallery. New Histories challenges the nature of art as historic record and the role of the artist and the museum as documenter, and commentator of the world.
