Over the past quarter of a century the Wesfarmers Collection has grown to be one of the largest and most important corporate collections in Australia. For the first time, visitors to the National Library will be able to see highlights of this exceptional collection—normally housed in Perth—that have been curated into an exhibition based on interpretations of the sublime.
