About the 9 x 5 Exhibition – Famously held in Melbourne in 1889, and opened on 17 August, this celebrated Australian Art Exhibition featured the works of Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder and Tom Roberts, amongst others. Four of the works purchased from this exhibition were recently donated to the Art Gallery of South Australia and were valued in excess of $3M dollars. The Exhibition has been described as “a celebrated event in Australian art history.”
Coincidentally, our 2018 Exhibition will also be opened on 17 August – some 129 years later.
