Event details

For the First Peoples of Australia, who have inhabited this country for over 60,000 years, and for those more recently arrived, our relationship with the Australian landscape is defined by both a deep cultural belonging and a history of conflict and displacement.

Expanding on the longstanding tradition of landscape photography, this exhibition centres each of the artists’ connection and disconnection to country. The works deconstruct how we occupy the land and explore ideas of home and identity within the environment informed by cultural, personal and historical narratives.

You Are Here subverts a sense of familiarity with the places we inhabit and ponders the experiences of those we share them with.

Featuring: Duha Ali and Justine Youssef, Ophelia Bakowski, Miriam Charlie, Club Ate (Bhenji Ra & Justin Shoulder) in collaboration with Tristan Jallah, Nici Cumpston, Tammy Law, James Tylor and Anne Zahalka.
