Late 20th century Sydney artist. Sharp's 1964 cartoon "The Word Spread Round the Arms", published in "Oz" was seen to breach the Obscene and Indecent Publications Act and resulted in charges being laid against Sharp and his editors. Later, after reprising his antipodean success with the London edition of "Oz", he returned to Australia where he founded the Yellow House at 59 Macleay Street Potts Point.
Robert Lindsay’s series of survey exhibitions were exhibited in a specially adapted area close to the Gallery Society Lounge. Each exhibition concentrated on one contemporary Australian artist and aimed to present a comprehensive survey of their work.
