Explore Melbourne's abstract painting trend with What's Happening Here?

Opening tomorrow the 18th March, our latest exhibition What's Happening Here? takes a look at some of Melbourne’s most interesting emerging abstract painters, and reveals a passion for non-representational painting.

Installation view, Eleanor Louise Butt's work.
The title is a play on a common query about abstract art’s meaning as well as a reflection on an apparent surge of young artists working with imagery of this kind in Melbourne.
