NEW ACQUISITIONS 2011−2013
April 13 – 26 June
Presiding Officers’ Exhibition Area
The Parliament House Art Collection (PHAC) is a national art collection of unique heritage value. The art program was developed as part of the design and construction of the building, so that it would showcase the best of Australian contemporary art and craft.
A major component of the PHAC is the Rotational Collection, which is intended to enhance the working surroundings in the suites of Members and Senators, as well as in the circulation areas of the building. The criteria for acquisitions in the Rotational Collection include works that reflect aspects of Australian culture, character and identity. The works on display here are part of the Rotational Collection.
