Another Green World: The Landscape of the 21st Century
Another Green World surveys art of the landscape in the contemporary era by female contemporary artists both emerging and established.
The exhibited works will encompass an historical consciousness of the landscape genre both from Western and Indigenous traditions as well as being an open speculation about the future of the biosphere itself.
The exhibition connects work that will be seen in the gallery projects in Dubbo and at the Western Plains Zoo.
Curated by Andrew Frost.
We don’t really need to be reminded just how contested the landscape is. From its state of crisis in a changing climate, to disputes over resources and use, to questions of ownership and sovereignty, the landscape continues to be an important subject in both wider culture, and in contemporary art.
Another Green World surveys the concept of a contemporary art of the landscape and how the themes of history, ecology, culture and utopianism are traced through the work of Kylie Banyard, Erin Coates, Megan Cope, Ashleigh Garwood, Sian McIntyre, Perdita Phillips, Lynn Roberts Goodwin and Caroline Rothwell.
The dates for the exhibition are Aug 26 to Dec 7, 2017.
Adults – $15.00
Children under 16 – Free
Concession/Students (over 16) – $7.00 (pension or student card must be presented).
