Amongst the extraordinary contemporary and historical pieces from the National Art Glass Collection, curator Suzanne Brett was drawn to sculptures with a common narrative. Beautifully crafted objects both powerful and ordinary that play a part in daily life, works that express a love for the landscape, portray hardships endured and others which define Australian society and culture. These came together to form the exhibition This Australian Life.
