    About the exhibition

    Curated in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria, The Land is Us: Stories, Place & Connection brings together notable artworks from the NGV Collection that offer an expanded consideration of landscape art. Weaving together complex and varied artistic approaches by Australian, First Nations, and international artists including Sidney Nolan, Reko Rennie, Hoda Afshar, Patricia Piccinini and John Brack, 'The Land is Us' examines our fascination and connection to the land and its role in shaping our national and personal identities. ⁠
