13.04.16 Road Trip – Group Exhibition

Road Trip is a group exhibition featuring the work of significant Australian artists Juz Kitson, Fiona Lowry, William Mackinnon and Guy Maestri. The show considers the long held presence of the ‘road trip’ in the Australian psyche and how it shapes our experience of the landscape.

The utterance of the phrase ‘road trip’ immediately conjures visions of escape, adventure and new horizons, but can also suggest disruption and potential adversity. Although lured by the beauty and freedom of the natural environment, we can sense the danger and mystery that our sometimes hostile terrain presents.

Contemporary engagement with the landscape is often mediated via the lens of the car window, which is evidenced in the works produced by these artists. Each artist in the show uniquely interprets the premise of the ‘road trip’ to produce a new series of artworks.

Road Trip will run from 19 April – 14 May.
