The Unexpected Art Tour

Exhibition and Shows

29 Feb 2020 to 1 Mar 2020

How do you build an art collection to reflect the aspirations of a nation? What happens when another country offers you a gift? Who chooses the artists to paint our highest officeholders?

As part of the Enlighten Festival, you have a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes at Parliament House to see furniture and artworks not always on public display.

Join Justine Van Mourik, Director of the Parliament House Art Collection, as she reveals the hidden gems and highlights of this remarkable collection.
