Uncommon Australians: The vision of Gordon and Marilyn Darling showcases portraits acquired through the generosity of the National Portrait Gallery’s Founding Patrons, L Gordon Darling AC CMG and Marilyn Darling AC; and pays tribute to the Darlings’ persistence in turning their private dream of a gallery of portraits of ‘uncommon Australians’ into a tangible collection in a purpose-built home.

Accompanied by a lavish catalogue, the exhibition will tour to McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery, Victoria, and the Tweed Regional Gallery, New South Wales.
