onetoeight: Australia’s First Prime Ministers

onetoeight: Australia’s First Prime Ministers 

Visually arresting, humorous and thoughtful, Canberra-based artist Alison Alder reinterprets and reinvigorates portraits of the first eight prime ministers in onetoeight: Australia’s First Prime Ministers, a contemporary art exhibition.

Through the portraits, intense patterned wallpaper honouring the prime minister’s wives and a Term-O-Meter animation tracking the amount of time each PM spent in parliament, Alder gives us a sense of our nation’s history that is lively, dynamic and parallels the present day.
