Atmosphere, Ecologies and Attunement
Contemporary Landscape Practice from the Devonport Regional Gallery Permanent Collection
27 May 2023 – 29 July 2023
This exhibition brings together artists from the Devonport Regional Gallery Permanent Collection whose work explores contemporary landscape practice. It looks at our relationship with the environment as a way of negotiating emerging ideas of entanglement and interestedness. We live, after all, in an astounding world of relations, and how we represent this relationship says much about the lens through which we view the world. The exhibition will consider how artists engage with atmosphere, ecology and environment, encouraging dialogue about our place in the world, and the environmental challenges we face moving forward.
Curated by Dr Troy Ruffels
