Outside Thoughts

Emily Floyd, Mitch Cairns, Darren Sylvester and Danie Mellor

Outside Thoughts examines critical and geographical perspectives in relation to Australian identity. The connection between aerial viewpoints and the national psyche – a feature of the history of Australian landscape painting – is used as a starting point for the exhibition. Responding to this idea in a broad sense, curator Wes Hill has invited some of Australia’s most innovative contemporary artists to adopt imagined ‘outside’ perspectives in their work, linking geographical representation with evocations of Australia’s cultural, historical and political character.

Curator: Wes Hill
