Everyday imagining: new perspectives on Outsider art counters this view by presenting Australian and New Zealand contemporary artists whose works reveal their proactive engagement with the external world.

While there is much debate about the use of the term ‘outsider art’, this exhibition doesn’t aim to resolve ambiguities around relevance or definition but instead questions a key interpretive bias that is a legacy of its origins in art brut.

Includes artists Andrew Blythe, Kellie Greaves, Julian Martin, Jack Napthine, Lisa Reid, Martin Thompson and Terry Williams.
