Tolarno Galleries

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Tolarno Galleries is known as one of Australia’s most stimulating exhibitors of contemporary art and design. Established in 1967, it has a rich history of presenting innovative and challenging work and of nurturing artists through their careers. In the early years, exhibitions by modern masters including Bonnard, Dali, Chagall, Matisse, Picasso, Pissarro, Renoir and Vuillard, were shown alongside new works by Rauschenberg, Johns, Rosenquist, Warhol, LeWitt and Koons. Significant bodies of work were shown by the pioneering Australian modernists Charles Blackman, John Brack, Arthur Boyd, Joy Hester and Albert Tucker.

In more recent times, four artists have represented Australia at the Venice Biennale: Patricia Piccinini (2003), Howard Arkley (1999), Judy Watson (1997) and Bill Henson (1995). The dynamic exhibition program, ranging from video, film, photography and installation, to painting, sculpture, digital media and cutting edge design, attracts the
attention of collectors, curators and critics from around the globe.

Director Jan Minchin, previously Curator of 20th Century Australian Art at the National Gallery of Victoria, is especially known for working closely with artists, curators and collectors to support the newest work of both up-and-coming and established artists.
