Merging the traditional and unconventional, WHO ARE YOU: Australian Portraiture is a co-curated combination of collections from the National Gallery of Victoria and National Portrait Gallery. Featuring 130 works across painting, film, photography, screen printing, sculpture, and then some – it explores our inner worlds, outer selves, intimacy, isolation, celebrity and more.

You’ll see artists such as Patricia Piccinini, Atong Atem, Howard Arkley, Vincent Namatjira, John Nixon and Tracey Moffatt. Think superstar sitters like Albert Namatjira, Cate Blanchett, Queen Elizabeth II, David Gulpilil and Jeff the Wiggle. And why not both? We give you John Brack, Nora Heysen, William Yang and Shirley Purdie, just to name a few.

From head and shoulders to shape and text, this exhibition will have you thinking about the ever-evolving and ever-expanding idea of portraiture.
