A touring exhibition, Contemporary Gippsland Artists features paintings, print, photographs and sculpture, by a selection of twenty artists working in the Gippsland area of Victoria. There is no particular theme or subject matter, no readily identifiable Gippsland landscape.
As David Hansen suggests in his catalogue essay, “the regional landscape is important only insofar as it is part of a wider lived experience, and insofar as it can be part of the narrower, thematic or formal concerns of the artists’ work”.
A touring exhibition organised by the Latrobe Valley Arts Centre. Curated by Donald Coventry and Rodney Scherer. Catalogue essays by Karen E. Bensley and David Hansen.
