Australia’s best exhibitions for summer 2015

As the country boasts a large number of museums and galleries, tourists, including those on award-winning escorted tours of Australia, are often attracted to the extensive list of ever-changing exhibitions and in order to help, The Australian has put together a list of the upcoming must see exhibitions for summer 2015.

This includes the ‘ambitious’ pop art exhibition, which was recently inaugurated at the Art Gallery NSW in Sydney and includes paintings by iconic artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. The article also recommends visitors in Sydney to check out the Chuck Close exhibition, which is taking place at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Those visiting Sydney in the summer will also be able to enjoy a new blockbuster exhibition about the Aztecs, which tells the birth of modern Mexico at the Australian Museum. It will include more than 200 priceless artefacts, as well as a pop-up gallery of works inspired by the Aztecs and created by Sydney artists.

From pop art and fashion to Aztecs and World War II

A theme that seems to be occurring at a number of museums and galleries across Australia is fashion, with Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide all displaying exhibitions relating to past trends and styles. This includes an exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, which explores the past 30 years of Japanese Fashion and provides opportunities to view unique creations, which range from classic to outrageous.

Alternatively in Perth, the Art Gallery of Western Australia will be showing some precious objects of those who died in German concentration camps during World War II. This will be an opportunity to see the Treasures of the Jewish Ghetto of Venice before it returns to Italy.
