On Earth

Past exhibition

On Earth traces conceptions of landscape and the environment as it is expressed and represented through the poetic devices of art. The exhibition examines the ways landscape manifests through culture, or personhood, and attempts to bring the two together, rather than separating them. On Earth includes artworks from the QUT Art Collection alongside the work of contemporary Australian artists. This timely exhibition delves into current discourses around the environment and how the arts may offer a different understanding of our opportunities and challenges.

Artists: Robert Andrew, Ray Beattie, Ian Burn, Michael Cook, Dean Cross, Nici Cumpston, Bonita Ely, Emma Fielden, Greg Forsyth, Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori, Kinly Grey, Dale Harding, Isaac Walter Jenner, Jillian Namatjira, Claude Pannka, Toni Robertson, Joe Rootsey, Kate Shaw, Sancintya Mohini Simpson, Yasmin Smith, Warraba Weatherall, Keemon Williams, Women’s Domestic Needlework Group and two historical works by artists once known.

Curated by Sarah Werkmeister.
