Rose Nolan

Born 1959, Melbourne. Lives and works Melbourne.


One of a group of Australian artists who formed a loose association around the experimental and innovative Store 5 artist-run space in Melbourne between 1989 and 1993, Rose Nolan’s work traverses forms and ideals founded in utopian strands of twentieth-century avant-gardism.

Rose Nolan has exhibited widely nationally and internationally since the 1980s. Recent solo exhibitions include Immodest Gestures and Irrational Thoughts, Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne (2015); Performance Architecture, Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne (2013); The Solo Projects, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, Melbourne (2011); Why Do We Do the Things We Do, Artspace, Sydney and Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2008); and Work in Progress #3, Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne (2008). Selected group exhibitions include 21st Century: The Collection Since 2000, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2015); Melbourne Now, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2014); Contemporary Australia: Women, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2012); Forever Young, Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne (2011); and 21st Century Modern: 2006 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide (2006). Nolan’s work is represented in major state gallery collections within Australia and private collections in Copenhagen, Cologne, Wellington and Amsterdam.

The monograph Rose Nolan: Why Do We Do the Things We Do was co-published by Artspace, Sydney and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane in 2008.
