A Time and a Place: Landscapes from the Griffith University Art Collection
February – April 2015
Exploring the influence Australian and Aboriginal artists have had in shaping our culture and understanding, A Time and a Place: Landscapes from the Griffith University Art Collection featured contemporary and historical artworks acquired since the early 1980s. The exhibition aimed to engage and reflect diverse art histories and visual languages through the lens of Griffith University Art Collection, analysing how it exemplifies ideas related to particular moments in time. A Time and a Place paid tribute to the enormous contribution made by artists in challenging and effecting transformation in our narratives and perspectives in respect of the land.
