Michael Riley’s portraits aquired by the National Portrait Gallery

Michael Riley’s fifteen early portraits exhibited in 2013 at The Commercial were acquired by the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. The entire series were exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery 21/03/14 – 17/08/14 as Beauty and Strength: Michael Riley. They “stand as an intricately connected group portrait of the vibrant urban-based Indigenous arts community in Sydney’s inner-west at a formative moment.”
