Jethro won a prize for saying he wouldn’t change a thing?

Actually, a graffiti gallery would be cool.
A room where people could draw on the walls would also be nice. (but probably full of cocks)

The NGA is arguably already full of cocks, Skid.

How about an exhibition of picture framing…no artwork, just the frames.

My favourite, second to my own of course.

Ideal exhibition- artists-in-naturism-residence working in many media on bodies beautiful and bizarre including the skin as canvas……celebrating raw nature.

i wanna see an exhibition created by non-human animals: elephants, monkeys, etc; perhaps counterpointed by a concurrent exhibition by autists.

“The Secret Creativities of Public Servants” – Art by government workers who exchange their suits for artist’s aprons when their 7.21 hours is done.

An exhibition based on urban art installations around the world. Mixed forms addressing documentary of pieces over time and public interaction with them.

I’d like to see an exhibition of the world’s great architecture, past, present and sustainable.

You never know, it just might inspire Canberra’s planners and developers to change their ways and build a city that has meaning and beauty and is in harmony with people.

I have a great idea, but I’m going on holiday and won’t be around for the opening, so I guess I’ll just keep it to myself!

The National Portrait Gallery next door has exactly that – it’s the Drawing Space at the end of the Headspace exhibition. They’ve provided plenty of pencils for drawing on post-its, the walls, large sheets of paper, etc, plus curved mirrors for inspiration. There’s hundreds of drawings already covering the walls.

Everyone’s encouraged to join in, so it’s great! A really lively spot.

To those suggesting street art – the Gallery already has a substantial in it’s collection. It won’t be too long until we see a show.
