Art in March: Your guide to the Australian exhibitions taking place this month

australian art march 2023

The breadth of art showing in Australia this month will give you whiplash. How else do you describe the dance between Haring, Basquiat and Warhol at Home of the Arts; Tony Albert, Serwah Attafuah and Tom Polo at Ngununggula and the host of emerging artists rolling through Felt Space in Adelaide. There's something for everyone, when it comes to Australian art in March 2023, and I implore you to go explore it.
