The National 2019: New Australian Art presents the latest ideas and forms in contemporary Australian art, curated across three of Sydney’s premier cultural institutions: the Art Gallery of NSW, Carriageworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. A six-year initiative over three editions in 2017, 2019 and 2021, the curatorial vision for the exhibition represents a mix of emerging, mid-career and established artists drawn from around the country and Australian artists practicing overseas. New and commissioned works encompass a diverse range of mediums including painting, video, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance. 

Walsh is exhibiting a “Field kit” version of their installation “The Anakatascope” recently shown in Chengdu, China as part of the Centre Pompidou exhibition “Cosmopolis 1.5” It is comprised of an interconnected series of sculptural pieces and a gouache on paper triptych.
