Inside The Gallery (Australia): Season 2 - Episode 11

November 29, 2020

EXHIBITION: "PUB ROCK" - National Portrait Gallery

Celebrating the people, places and sounds of Australian pub rock and its enduring impact on our nation’s identity, the story of staging this exhibition is a tale itself.

Amongst the portraits, publicity shots and grungy energy of live performance, Joanna Gilmour's achievement of curating the exhibition from 860kms away, isolated behind a closed COVID border, is staggering.

This vibrant (sometimes sweaty) exhibition of homegrown rock ‘n’ roll, punk and pop features works from the gallery's collection alongside images by leading Australian music photographers.
