Collection focus: Michael Cook


3 June - 3 September 2023

Invasion places an imaginative eye on Australian colonial history and turns around the dominant view, taking alien creatures into iconic London-based cityscapes, with white urban residents their victims.

This is the first time we are presenting all six large-scale prints from Michael Cook’s Invasion series that were donated by the artist in 2021.
