As a city initiated as an imagined capital for the new Australian nation, Canberra has been a place that quickly invited visual representation. As it developed, artists have seen Canberra through different lenses, and these have shaped the way they understood and interpreted the evolving landscape.
In this exhibition, drawn primarily from CMAG’s collection, visitors will journey through four key periods of the city’s development and for each, will encounter an object that represents a prism to understand a way of seeing at that time.
