International Art to See: Australia & New Zealand

Here's the last (awhh no!) of my International Art to See Series (see North America, South America, Europe part I, Europe part II, Africa & Middle East and Asia) but don't worry there'll always be more art to see! Did you see my posts about the tv series High Art in the Low Countries? {Dreams of Plenty, Boom & Bust} and I've made a little Blog Button (inspired by Richard Diebenkorn -it's over there on the right, dya see it?) to collect all these art to see posts together.

I started this series way back in January and my initial research brought these exhibitions up below, but since I've travelled the world from West to East these amazing shows have just recently finished. (If you did manage to catch them, you were very lucky! I still get mad thinking about how I missed the  Eva Hesse show at Tate Modern 10 years ago! I didn't know who she was when it came & like 2 months later she was my favourite artist! dang!) 

What will you see next?
