2011 National Gallery Victoria Acquisition

In 2011 the National Gallery of Victoria acquired two lace lengths together with a suite of lace postcards. The Victorian Foundation for Living Australian Artists funded the acquisition. Over the last decade the fund has acquired 380 works that demonstrate the diversity and rigour in Australian Art practice today. 

The lace works were included in Negotiating this World: Contemporary Australian Art an exhibition to commemorate a decade of Australian Art, held at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV.
