Curated by writer and artist, Kevin Wilson, about-place / about-face takes a very different viewpoint on the concept of ‘natural place’. Working from the assumption that our perspective and understanding of ‘natural place’ is imbued with our own lived experience, 16 artists have produced artworks ranging from painting, photography, digital animation, video, sculpture, moving image installation and collaborative works that examine the idea that when we look at a place, we inevitably look in a mirror at ourselves.

Exhibiting artists: Kalulah Bird (Butchulla); Sharka Bosakova; Kane Brunjes (Gunggari, Kabi Kabi); Marguerite de Mosa; Simone Eisler; John Fuller; Joolie Gibbs; Katie Harris-MacLeod; James Muller; Colin Pennock; Karla Pringle; Melissa Stannard (Yuwaalaray Gamilaraay, Kooma, Celtic); Matthew Stanton; Emma Thorp; Nicole Voevodin-Cash; Kevin Wilson
