It’s another case of a “blink and you’ll miss it” venture that has come to an end in a tucked-away Canberra space.
But in this case, the venture involves one of Australia’s most important cultural institutions, and the cause is relentless government cutbacks, rather than a failed commercial enterprise.
The National Gallery of Australia is set to close its contemporary art space on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin less than two years after it opened.
