A night in the JOL: The Johnstone Gallery

The Johnstone Gallery operated in Brisbane from 1950–72, a seminal time in the development of an audience for contemporary art in Australia. The gallery represented major Australian artists of the period, including Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd and Margaret Olley. Upon its closure, Marjorie Johnstone bequeathed the records of the gallery to SLQ and they are amongst our most valuable resources on art in Queensland.

Join Ian Townsend from ABC Radio National as he leads a discussion with gallerist and former Assistant Director of the Johnstone Gallery, Victor Mace, and Simon Elliott, Assistant Director Curatorial and Educational Services, National Gallery of Australia who attended the Johnstone Gallery as a child.
