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.

See intense patterned wallpaper honouring the prime minister’s wives and a Term-O-Meter animation tracking the changing political hues of individuals and governments. Through the portraits Alder gives us a sense of Australia's history that is lively, dynamic and parallels the present day.
