Landscape and memory: an exhibition at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery

Kerby, Martin and McDonald, Janet (2018) Landscape and memory: an exhibition at the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery. Australian Art Education, 39 (2). pp. 236-267. ISSN 1032-1942


In early August 2018, the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery (TRAG) in Queensland opened a group exhibition titled Landscape and Memory: Frank Hurley and a nation imagined. Eight artists responded to official war photographer Frank Hurley’s iconic images taken on the Western Front and in the Middle East in 1917 and 1918. Though the exhibition took its place amidst a plethora of First World War centenary commemorative activities, at a broader level it was in fact an exploration of the place of landscape in the Australian cultural imagination.
