Last night former director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Edmund Capon, launched a new art exhibition in the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House focusing on the role regional communities play in the social and artistic landscape of our nation.
The Federal Minister for the Arts, Senator Mitch Fifield, was also in attendance at the launch of “Right Here Now: a powerful regional voice in our democracy.”
Highlighting the influence and prominence of rural voices in Australian democratic society, the show has provided a channel for regional artists to convey their political opinion through creative design.
