From the Director

Welcome to a celebration of a dynamic year for the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art. From the closing months of APT9 to exhibitions from some of Australia’s best-loved and most thought-provoking artists, and ending with a deep dive into one of the world’s most contested and important resources, 2019 has been a time of discovery, renewal and reflection. On this journey, we’ve been joined by amazing artists, partners and supporters and a dedicated and diverse audience, all of whom I thank for helping us bring the Gallery to life.

Chris Saines CNZM
Director, QAGOMA

Outspoken and rebellious, Jon Molvig (1923–70) dominated the Brisbane art scene into the late 1960s with an uncompromising expressionist view of the world. Molvig was also a charismatic teacher whose commitment to painting inspired a group of young artists. ‘Jon Molvig: Maverick’ acknowledged his contribution to both the local art community and to Australian and Queensland art history, and brought his stylistic eclecticism to the fore.
