Free Event

Never the same river is an exhibition of works of art across timeframes, acknowledging that the ways in which artists engage ideas and produce work do not necessarily follow a linear path.

The exhibition draws from the histories of four galleries—Melbourne’s United Artists (1982—1988), City Gallery (1988—1993) and Anna Schwartz Gallery, in both Melbourne (1993—present) and Sydney (2008—2015). The exhibition will be designed in collaboration with Denton Corker Marshall, the architects who designed the gallery at 185 Flinders Lane in 1993.

Spanning the 1980s to the present, the exhibition elaborates the themes, ideas, beliefs and passions that have motivated the artists in their struggle to work within and against established conventions. Many works directly engage the political and social contexts of their time, and are redefined by the present tense.
