2004: Australian Culture Now


This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.


8 Jun – 12 Sep 2004

ACMI and the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) joined forces for the first time to present an unprecedented landmark national survey of the work at the edge of current artistic practice at Federation Square.

Unmatched in its scale and spanning the breadth of visual culture, 2004 included the latest film, video, television, painting, networked media, sculpture, installation, photography, craft, design and fashion.

This major exhibition showcased new work by more than 130 leading and emerging Australian artists.

The extensive program of events, exhibitions, talks and screenings as part of 2004 were complemented by a pioneering online exhibition of networked media, a series of specially commissioned ARTV short films screened on SBS, and a major publication.

This project was assisted by the Commonwealth Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
