Modernist art walking tour

The Student

Tom Bass, The Student, 1953, University Art Collection

Explore the modernist art collections of the University of Sydney's Camperdown campus in a one-hour tour.

From Tom Bass's monumental sculpture The Student, with its demonstration of internal reflection and study while turning its back on the world outside the gates of the University, through to recent paintings displayed in the Law School Building, this walking tour takes you on a journey through Australian modernist art.

Works by artists such as Harry Wedge, Elwyn (Jack) Lynn and Michael Johnson will be viewed as the tour explores the University's relationship with Australian art over the past 50 years.
