Sampling some of the best artists and works to have come out of Europe in recent times, EuroVisions encompasses a vibrant cross-section of tendencies in contemporary art. Conceptual approaches, innovative thinking and a sense of history inform the exhibition, which ranges across painting, photography and sculpture.

Selected from the Sydney-based collection of Lisa and Danny Goldberg OAM, Eurovisions includes works by several of the most widely recognised figures in contemporary art—Urs Fischer, Katharina Grosse, Ugo Rondinone, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rudolf Stingel, Heimo Zobernig, Sarah Lucas and Rachel Whiteread. The exhibition also introduces work by a newer, up-and-coming generation of practitioners with studios in Europe and the United Kingdom, such as Danh Vō, Camille Henrot and Nicole Wermers.
