Title: Post-imperial perspectives: British art since 1940 at the Art Gallery of South Australia
Author: Osborne, Margot
Issue Date: 2016
School/Discipline: School of Humanities
Abstract: This dissertation examines the Art Gallery of South Australia’s patterns of collecting modern and contemporary British art since the outbreak of the Second World War. It analyses the relative influence on these collecting patterns of Australia’s transition from a mono-cultural British dominion to a post-imperial multicultural nation positioned in the Asia/Pacific region, in comparison to the influence of institutional and art world changes. It evaluates the resulting strengths and weaknesses of the collection and assesses post-imperial museological issues pertaining to collection management.
