Two-time Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton has long been wowing audiences with her kaleidoscopic collages, sculpture and film, amassing an impressive oeuvre of works that's positioned her as one of Australia's most admired artists. For her latest major solo exhibition at NGV Australia, the Sydney-based artist continues her interrogation of both humanistic and animals forms, using gaudy colours and patterns to draw the viewer into her works. The Highway is a Disco is Barton's largest solo exhibition to date, offering up many of her most famous works, while also presenting new works from which the exhibition draws its name. It will be on display from Friday, November 17 until Monday, March 12.
