Brought to Light II: Contemporary Australian Art 1966–2006 includes more than 60 commissioned texts on key works in the Gallery’s Australian collection, including painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography, printmaking, glass, ceramics and textiles. Eminent curators, art historians and scholars, have contributed to the publication. Sebastian Smee explores Fred Williams’s ‘Australian landscape’ series of the 1960s and 1970s, curator John Murphy traces the life of the Australian adventurer–writer Ernestine Hill in his discussion of Sam Fullbrook’s 1970 portrait, and the assemblage art of Rosalie Gascoigne is discussed by writer Mary Eagle.

Brisbane-based art theorist Rex Butler examines the Australian landscape tradition in the work of Queensland artist William Robinson, anthropologist Howard Morphy explores the creativity of recent Yolngu art from Arnhem Land, curator Hetti Perkins contributes a study of Michael Riley’s photographic and cinematic oeuvre, and Queensland Art Gallery curators Suhanya Raffel and Bruce McLean provide insight into recent works by Fiona Hall and the Hermannsburg Potters respectively.
