How Yesterday Remembers Tomorrow



How Yesterday Remembers Tomorrow  featured work by six contemporary Australian artists and artist partnerships who are past recipients of the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship for emerging artists.

Presenting early works alongside more recent projects by each artist and artist partnership, the exhibition offered a unique insight into the conceptual and artistic development of early career artists, highlighting how artists’ practices develop over time through sustained research, experimentation and refinement. The exhibition encouraged us to rediscover the past in order to look to the future.

Featuring work by Lauren Brincat, Sean Cordeiro & Claire Healy, Todd McMillan, Ms&Mr, Tony Schwensen and Sam Smith, and ranging across photography, drawing, digital video and installation, the exhibition provided stimulating commentary on an array of current social and political issues, shedding light on the concerns of young artists today.
