Black Mist Burnt Country Exhibition

Exhibition and Shows

23 Aug 2018 to 18 Nov 2018

The Black Mist Burnt Country exhibition is a national touring exhibition produced by Burrinja Dandenong Ranges Cultural Centre in Upwey, Victoria. It consists of artworks by over 30 Indigenous and non-indigenous artists commemorating the British atomic tests in Australia in the 1950s.

A variety of interactive elements will enable visitors to contemplate the impact of atomic testing in Australia on country and people. It places the Australian tests in the context of the wider history of the nuclear arms race and its contemporary realities.

The exhibition presents artworks from both public and private collections across mediums of painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, new media and music, including works by Albert Tucker, Arthur Boyd, Sidney Nolan, Ian Howard, Pam Debenham, Toni Robertson, Rosemary Laing and Susie Norrie among Aboriginal artists Jonathan Kumintjarra Brown, Judy Watson, Hilda Moodoo and Yvonne Edwards among others.
