Country In Mind

Exhibition and Shows

25 Oct 2021 to 27 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

The art of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is a modern vibrant expression of many Indigenous nations. Representation of Country is full of associative information connecting the past, present and future which always begins with Country in mind.

Drawn mostly from the University of the Sunshine Coast Art Collection, the exhibition focuses on work from the central desert, the Kimberley to the northwest, Arnhem Land and the offshore islands in the far north. It explores the continuum among communities who make work about Country while also delving into the idiosyncrasies of individual artistic expression.

A USC Art Gallery exhibition curated by Christopher Bassi.
