Curated by the late John Stringer, the exhibition Peep surveys tendencies in Australian and International art since the 1960s, showcasing many works which have not been publicly shown in Australia before. Peep is a deeply personal journey that virtually spans John Stringer's long curatorial career.

Illustrating the diversity of art produced during the past four decades the exhibition focuses on the revival of imagery, content and social commentary towards the end of the second millennium. The exhibition begins with Pop, Op and pattern painting by internationally renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Bridget Riley and Alfred Jensen; the new realism of Philip Pearlstein; and minimal and conceptual art by artists such as Haim Steinbach and Walter de Maria. Moving to the 1980s and beyond reveals aspects of the media explosion revolutionising the character of art over the past two decades.

Western Australian artists feature strongly in the exhibition with works by Miriam Stannage, Howard Taylor, James Angus, Cecile Williams, Matthew Hunt, Christian de Vietri, Steve Tepper and Philip Gamblen.

Presented in collaboration with Australian Capital Equity Pty. Limited and the TarraWarra Museum of Art.
