Colin McCahon: A Time for Messages

Exhibition date:
02 February 2001 to 13 May 2001
National Gallery of Victoria

McCahon's painting has been profoundly influential on the art and critical thinking of New Zealand and Australian artists. This exhibition, therefore, integrates the works of several artists whose concepts of place, identity, cultural memory and spirituality can be seen to be in dialogue with McCahon's vision. 

Colin McCahon - A time for messages has been organised to celebrate the Gallery's recent acquisition of Colin McCahon's One (1965), a significant early painting that has been a collection priority for several years.
