Just Landscape

Features some of the best landscape artists of the Northern Rivers. 

The Serpentine Gallery is hosting Just Landscape from July 12 to 22. This large group show celebrates responses to the Australian landscape, a perennial subject that endures despite trends in the art world. Responses vary widely: some artists amplify and reflect its literal beauty, others use it as a platform to comment on political or cultural issues, and still others experiment abstractly.

The heritage of landscape painting in Australia spans from pre-colonization to contemporary times, absorbing approaches from Romanticism to abstraction, spirituality, and objective representation. Australians cherish landscape art for its beauty, cultural significance, and its role in supporting Australia’s diverse ecosystems.

Opening event is July 12th from 6pm till 9pm

Twin Speak

A Step into Cryptophasia by Erica and Benjamin Gully

Drawing upon such instances as their favourite bands in high school, or referencing television shows they watched growing up - Erica and Ben utilise their art practices to provide us with a series of clues (some involving actual idiosyncratic language they developed when they were young and still use today) that gives the audience insights into their world of Twin Speak.

This Place
