The NGV presents a major solo exhibition of one of Australia’s most popular artists, Del Kathryn Barton.

Del Kathryn Barton: The Highway is a Disco reveals the artist’s imaginative and deeply sensuous world, where ornately decorated species – both human and animal – are rendered in seductive line and colour. A survey of new and recent work, it reveals the breadth of Barton’s practice.

Featuring comprehensive displays of recent paintings and drawings for which she is arguably best known, the exhibition also includes collage, sculpture, textiles and film, all drawn together by the artist’s exuberant and psychedelic aesthetic.
