EXHIBITIONS: CULTURAL LANDSCAPES
10 Feb 2018 - 18 Mar 2018 | 9.00am - 4.30pm
From the pastoral to the sublime, landscape is one of the most traditional subjects in Western Art. 20th century philosophical enquiries have evolved our understanding of landscapes to include a complex layering of concerns and meaning.
Cultural Landscapes, as defined by UNESCO, are formed by the combined work of nature and man. Within this exhibition leading contemporary artists Jon Cattapan, Richard Goodwin, Claire Healy, Sean Cordeiro, Yvonne Koolmatrie, Rosemary Laing, Stephen Birch, Rodney Pople, Joan Ross and Anne Zahalka reinterpret this definition by exploring the emotive, political, social and economic impact man has made on our landscape. They provide a new reading of the intimacy of relationships between humans and the Australian landscape, thwarting the idealistic to expose a more complicated geography.
