The Highway is a Disco: Del Kathryn Barton's latest exhibition

The free exhibition brings themes of motherhood, feminism and nature to the NGV.

Del Kathryn Barton, two-time Archibald Prize-winner, has unleashed her largest collection of works ever for a free exhibition at the NGV. Entitled The Highway is a Disco, it’s an immersive experience full of paintings, sculptures, films, and even a tribute to 'Puff the Magic Dragon'.
Featuring 150 new works by the artist, Barton’s show includes highlights like RED, a short film starring Australia’s own Cate Blanchett, and an enormous wood & silk sculpture called at the foot of your love that Barton made in response to her own mother’s terminal illness.
The display is deeply personal for Del Kathryn Barton and is bound to be a unique event.
The Highway is a Disco is on display at the Ian Potter Centre as part of the NGV’s summer program. The program also includes exhibitions by Helen Maudsley, Mel O’Callaghan and Louise Paramor.

The exhibition is open at the Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia from November 17 until March 12 2018. Entry is free. See ngv.vic.gov.au for more details.
