A significant collection of Contemporary European works of art have gone on show at the Canberra Museum and Gallery.

The works are drawn from a single collection, assembled by Sydney-based collectors, Lisa and Danny Goldberg.

The exhibition, EuroVisions: Contemporary Art from the Goldberg Collection, offers an insight into the diverse work of a new generation of artists working in Europe today.

Minister for the Arts and Cultural Events, Gordon Ramsay said the European Union’s representatives in Australia supported exhibition.

“This is just part of the significant and ongoing contribution that the EU and European missions make to the cultural life of Australia and our region,” Mr Ramsay said.

“This generous support includes hosting concerts, travelling exhibitions, visiting artists and academics, and so much more.”

He said the European Union’s Chargé d’Affaires in Australia, Fabio Spadi said the EU supported the exhibition as part of its European Year of Cultural Heritage.

“The purpose of this is to encourage more people to discover and experience the intricate tapestry of Europe’s rich cultural heritage,” Dr Spadi said.

“Cultural diplomacy empowers citizens and the civil society to recognise the intertwined nature of our societies, history and culture in the hope they can build a better tomorrow for all of us.”

A Celebration Launch Party for the exhibition will be held at CMAG at 8pm tomorrow night (Friday, 23 November) with refreshments and entertainment.
