Presenting work by 16 international artists, drawn from the personal collection of Danny and Lisa Goldberg, EuroVisions encompasses a vibrant cross-section of leading tendencies in contemporary art. Conceptual approaches, innovative thinking and a sense of history inform these artists’ practices. The majority of works have been produced only in the last five years and are on view publicly for the first time in Australia.
The exhibition features high-profile artists such as Anish Kapoor, Urs Fischer, Katharina Grosse, Sarah Lucas, Ugo Rondinone and Wolfgang Tillmans, who are among the most important and influential artists today. It also introduces a newer generation of artists who have studios in Europe, are represented by foremost international galleries and are considered ‘artists to watch’ for their inventiveness and fresh approaches.
EuroVisions: Contemporary Art from the Goldberg Collection features some of the world’s most important and influential contemporary artists, drawn from the personal collection of Lisa and Danny Goldberg. This exhibition was initially conceived by the National Art School, Sydney, and curated by Judith Blackall. The exhibition in Lismore has been repurposed for the new gallery facility and has been supported by Linnaeus Estate.
