Australia. Antipodean Stories at PAC (Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea), Milan, Italy, curated by Eugenio Viola, is the largest exhibition of contemporary Australian art to be presented internationally. It includes 32 artists from established to emerging and from different generations and cultural backgrounds, among them Vernon Ah Kee, Khadim Ali, Brook Andrew, Daniel Boyd, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Barbara Cleveland, Destiny Deacon, Hayden Fowler, Marco Fusinato, Agatha Gothe-Snape, Julie Gough, Fiona Hall, Dale Harding, Nicholas Mangan, Angelica Mesiti, Archie Moore, Callum Morton, Tom Nicholson (with Greg Lehman), Jill Orr, Stuart Ringholt, Khaled Sabsabi, Yhonnie Scarce, Soda_Jerk, Judy Watson, Jason Wing and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu.

Artists in the exhibition are influenced by their individual histories, experiences and backgrounds, languages, ethnicities, religions and different traditions – from Aboriginal or Islander cultures to those of European, Pacific, Asian and American descent are the voices and perspectives brought to the floor in Australia. Antipodean Stories – running until February 9, 2020 in Milan, Italy.
