George Baldessin and Brett Whiteley were born in the same year – 1939 – and in the 1960s and 1970s experienced meteoric success in their respective cities of Melbourne and Sydney.

Baldessin / Whiteley: Parallel Visions combines some of these artists’ most iconic works as well as others that have never been exhibited before. It includes artworks from Whiteley’s Christie series and Baldessin’s etchings that redefined for a generation of Melburnians their attitude to eroticism and the urban environment.

Join the NGV Learning team for an introduction to the exhibition with Guest Curator Sasha Grishin, followed by a life drawing workshop with artist Godwin Bradbeer.
