Australian landscape photography 1970s until now
Art Gallery of New South Wales
Art Gallery Rd, The Domain 2000
Sydney, Australia

16 Mar - 29 May 2011

free entry - definitely going to this one - I will be make an evening of this with a sunset session at mrs mac's chair. Anyone keen?


Unlike politically and conceptually informed landscape photography in Australia in the 1970s, which was a tentative exploration of the idea of place and reclamation, some recent photographic work can be seen to explore the idea of place in dynamic relation to culture, despite the specificities of location.

This exhibition looks at the earlier work and compares and contrasts intention and effect in relation to more recent photography and examines works that present very specific views of locations and what that location or place can be taken to represent. Includes 18 artists from Jon Rhodes, Lynn Silverman, Simryn Gill, Ricky Maynard, Rosemary Laing to Paul Ogier.

This exhibition was..interesting, I am not sure whether I really liked it or not, there was quite a few abstract scenes and the impression I got was it was more abstract art then 1970s landscape photography. Nonetheless it was an educational experience and not time wasted.

I have to say (and this will only mean somethign for those who have seen it), but wtf was the bunch of white pictures on teh back wall (well thats what they seemed to me!) talk about very ultra super minimalist, it felt like 'here's a blank piece of canvas make your own mind up' :rotfl2:

probably my lack of art understanding coing thru here... :roll:

:rotfl2: Maybe.... Although it's hard to define what an art understanding/appreciation is in the first palce.

[Hope I haven't opened a can of worms about art understanding.... :roll: ]
