Ambassador Mike Rann’s speech for the opening of Augmented Australia
‘Australia has outstanding architects who have developed their own rather than a borrowed genre. Increasingly they see their work through a uniquely Australian rather than a European, American or any other lens. And with the deepest understanding of sustainability. Around Australia extraordinary buildings are emerging.’ It is a great pleasure for me, as Australia’s Ambassador to Italy, to be with you today for the opening of the Augmented Australia exhibition. Late last year, again in association with the Australia Council, I opened the National Gallery’s Australia landscape exhibition in London at the Royal Academy. It was an exhibition covering vast territory over 200 years and told the changing face of Australian identity. It helped explain our place and our story, both to ourselves and to the world. It was the biggest retrospective ever to leave Australian shores and included works by Sir Sydney Nolan, Arthur Boyd, Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Patricia Piccinini. Read more.
