Contemporary artists respond to Tracey Moffatt’s 1997 photographic series Up in the Sky

On the 20th anniversary of Tracey Moffatt’s work Up in the Sky, Penrith Regional Gallery will exhibit this seminal series in its Lewers House Gallery. Produced in 1997, this photographic series may be read as black and white film stills, set in an iconic outback Australian landscape. Moffatt’s landscape is peopled, with an open-ended narrative that is provocative of questions of personal, cultural and political histories, both remarkably Australian and global.

Headlining the Gallery’s Summer Exhibition Suite, in the Main Gallery, a curated exhibition – Landing Points – will, along with commissioned essays, look to Moffatt’s work as a starting point in consideration of the last 20 years of race, place and identity in Australia.

Eleven artists (established and early career) will produce new works for the show, across the mediums of painting, performance, photography, film, installation and blogging. These artists are:

Tim Johnson, Jason Wing, Alana Hunt, Caroline Garcia, Victoria Garcia, Carla Liesch, Nicole Monks, Mark Shorter, Cigdem Aydemir, Hayley Megan French and Joan Ross.

The artists will respond to the cultural complexities layered in the Australian landscape and our relation to it.
