Celebrating the diversity of art making in Australia, New Acquisitions in Context 2013 features a range of media from painting and photography through to installation and the moving image and draws together multiple themes and ideas through a collection of very different artworks.

Investigate dream states, nightmares and the influence of Surrealism with works by Nicholas Folland, Peter Booth and Louise Weaver. Explore landscape in its various forms, real and imagined, sacred and suburban in works by Tracey Moffatt, Judith Wright, Imants Tillers, Simryn Gill, Fiona Lowry and Shaun Gladwell and see works about light by artists Stephen Birch and Emma White.
