Tasmanian artists provide insights into the unique set of historical and social forces that have shaped the island’s present identity and continue to influence its future. Tasmanian Landscape will exhibit a diversity of creative exploration specific to the unique environment of Australia's only island state. Within our contemporary sensibility the natural ethos encompasses many and numerous variables. Tasmanian Landscape will give creative expression to these differences by sculpture, painting, photography and installation.

Tasmanian Landscape is exhibited in partnership with the The Travelling/Writing Tasmania Symposium 2014 to be hosted in collaboration by Colonialism and its Aftermath (CAIA) research centre (UTAS), and the Association for the Study of Australian Literature (ASAL).
