From the Field

In 1968 The National Gallery of Victoria presented the first comprehensive display of color field painting and abstract sculpture in Australia, The Field. 50 years later, the NGV is revisiting this seminal and at the time controversial exhibition in a restaging of the original show. From the Field, takes the original NGV exhibition as a departure point to explore hard edge abstraction within the NERAM collections.   Image: Dick Watkins Untitled (detail) 1963. enamel on composition board.
