A decolonial geographic

Curated by Fernando do Campo

Artists: Richard Bell, Jon Cattapan, Juan Davila, Kerry Gregan, Raafat Ishak, Penny Mason, Alex Pittendrigh, Jessica Rankin, Judy Watson, Megan Walch and Ruth Waller.

A decolonial geographic bring together 11 artists who engage with pictorial, material and philosophical questions that rethink misleading representations of the Australian landscape in A decolonial geographic. Ideas of the pastoral and natural Australian landscape are commonly depicted as postcard perfect – sublime and transcendent – and emptied of human beings. A decolonial geographic recalibrates this idealised and romantic view of what landscape signifies and how it should be portrayed.

A decolonial geographic is a Devonport Regional Gallery exhibition toured by Contemporary Art Tasmania.

Exhibition dates: 16 Dec 2017 – 28 Jan 2018
