American dream, American nightmare is a two-part display that focuses on one of the Collection's most iconic and most requested works, Brett Whiteley's The American dream 1968-1969.

This major, 18 part installation has not been seen at the Gallery since 2004 and it is looking better than ever: the work has recently received major conservation treatment prior to its inclusion in the major survey of Australian and international Pop art Pop to Popism at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
