How do contemporary artists challenge representations of the rural through landscape?

In this event featuring artist Rebecca Chesney and art historian Rosemary Shirley, we ask how artists think about landscape beyond an idea of the sublime, to encompass everyday lived experience in remote places.

How can we relate to landscapes, familiar and unfamiliar? It is often the particular, sometimes spectacular conditions of remote places that shape their culture and define a sense of place. At the same time, remote or ‘wild’ landscapes can be considered a privilege for those with the time and means to visit them, raising the question ‘who is the landscape for?’

This event unpacks our assumptions about landscape and culture to offer new perspectives.
