going beyond the veneer / by Hannah Gason

Recently, I visited Beyond the Veneer (A fresh look at the Prime Minister's suite) at the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament House, Canberra).  It was interesting to see how a mix of artists responded to the historic rooms in the PM's suite.  I particularly appreciated the way that the Russell Baldon, a visiting American, used the space to create such a beautiful installation.
