Grace Crowley: being modern is an important retrospective exhibition of paintings and drawings by one of Australia's most influential modern artists. This is the first exhibition of Grace Crowley's work since 1975. It includes important works from public and private collections and traces her remarkable artistic journey from traditional landscapes to avant-garde experimentation and pure abstraction. The exhibition includes several recently rediscovered paintings and the largest number of Crowley's abstract paintings ever assembled, enabling a new appraisal of her achievement.
