Transitional Times – the approaching fin de siècle
Mildura Arts Centre Collection
‘People have often perceived the advent of a new century not just as marking the passage of time, but as symbolising change, and with that change a ferment of ideas and creativity.’
The 1991 Print Council of Australia commissioned portfolio represents the major social, political and environmental changes that occurred in the world’s strategic fields as the end of the twentieth century drew near and the possibilities of a new century were imagined.
Transitional Times is an editioned set of prints by sixteen artists including Raymond Arnold, Heather Shimmen, John Cattapan and Judy Watson.
