This touring exhibition from the National Portrait Gallery celebrates candid, contrived, natural, sexy, ironic, beautiful and fascinating Australian portraits which all show a bit of skin.

Fun and forthright, the exhibition interrogates our instinctive, embedded and complex reactions to nakedness. The portraits, which feature some of Australia’s greatest sports people and foremost creative achievers, including Billy Slater, Germaine Greer, Dame Edna Everage, David Gulpilil and Megan Gale explore the subtle but crucial differences between the naked and the nude, being dressed or undressed and seeing someone clothed or unclothed.

A special entry fee of $5 ($3 concessions/$10 family) will be charged for Bare and Behind the Lines. The entry fee covers admission into both exhibitions.
