Country & Western: landscape re-imagined brings into focus the contrasting insights and cultural imperatives, both Indigenous (Country) and non-Indigenous (Western), that have given shape and substance to our evolving attitudes and perceptions of the national landscape over the past twenty-five years. In traversing the Australian landscape through a disparate body of work by a significant group of thirty-nine artists working in various media, the exhibition reaffirms the impact landscape exerts on the national psyche.
