CURRENT EXHIBITION : ENIGMAS OF THE OUTBACK
Enigmas of the Outback
29 September 2019 - 9 February 2020
This exhibition is about the Australian outback as an enigmatic, mysterious, spirited and haunted terrain.
The selection of photographic, paint and sculptural works reflect upon how the outback triggers the imagination in unsettling ways. Through responses to the spirituality and mythology of the Australian landscape, this exhibition is at once darkly evocative and psychologically compelling.
Featured are both indigenous and non-indigenous works from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, Murdoch University Collection and works by local contemporary artists for sale.
