NEW 2011 features a selection of artworks acquired for The University of Queensland Art Collection during 2011. The exhibition highlights the University’s active acquisition program, which continues a tradition of acquiring innovative artworks that respond to the contemporary moment. Also featured are works from earlier periods, which enter the Collection primarily through donations (including gifts under the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program), donations and bequests. Works range in media, and address subjects such as the environment, cultural history, abstraction, and the self.

Artists include Richard Bell, Gordon Bennett, Pat Brassington, Celeste Chandler, Debra Dawes, Destiny Deacon, Ian Friend, Helga Groves, Tim Johnson, Peter Kennedy, Rosemary Laing, Janet Laurence, Rhys Lee, Norman Lindsay, Gabriella Mangano and Silvana Mangano, Ricky Maynard, Danie Mellor, Graeme Peebles, Cecilia Peter, Ryan Presley, Stuart Ringholt, Gordon Shepherdson, Tim Silver, Darren Siwes, Gemma Smith, Paul Wrigley, and Bill Yaxley.
