Sport is a national obsession in Australia.  For many Australian artists, sport is also a rich subject full of myths and legends, heroes and heroines, participants and spectators.  It’s about winners and losers and the thrill of playing the game.


From early iconic images of ‘bronzed Aussies’ through to contemporary representations of significant moments in Australian sport, this exhibition features works from the Parliament House Art Collection and pays tribute to our sporting heroes and backyard amateurs alike.
