Behind Closed Doors - The latest exhibit from the WAG's New Contemporary series reveals what is often unseen by the public, the artist's process in their studio, and their research from the museum vault. There is a sense of enchantment visiting artists in their spaces and connecting the ways ideas are expressed in different forms.
