Katie Wests work ‘Clearing’ is being exhibited as part of the group show ‘Cry of the Land’ at Heide Museum.
Inspired by Albert Tucker’s active support of environmental conservation, Cry of the Land charts diverse and often moving interpretations of the Australian landscape, compelling us to confront the devastating long-term effects of drought, fire, flood and human destruction. The exhibition includes works by Australian modernists such as Tucker, Sidney Nolan and Fred Williams, and by a range of contemporary practitioners including First Nations artists Julie Gough, Dale Harding, Karla Dickens and Katie West. Utilising differing media and means, these artists explore our instinctive connection to place and call for meaningful action to address the climate crisis.
The exhibition will be on display from the March 20 to August 15. Read more.
