Australian Print Workshop is proud to present the results of a major international project FRENCH CONNECTIONS, curated by APW Director Anne Virgo OAM, planned in collaboration with the National Gallery of Australia and made possible by the generous support of The Collie Print Trust.
This is the first of a series of exhibitions by the four artists who participated in FRENCH CONNECTIONS. Gracia Haby & Louise Jennison's work reflects the interplay of natural history, the history of science, empire, art and anthropology relating to early French exploration of Australia and the Pacific as well as other French/Australia connections that was the focus a their 2018 research study trip to France.
APW and the Artists had privileged access to study rarely seen and highly significant collections in leading museums that has informed and inspired the production of an exciting new body of work in the print medium.
