In and of this place is an online exhibition that has been developed in partnership with Benalla Art Gallery as part of NETS Victoria’s 50/50 exhibition series. The exhibition features a group of selected works by Australian artists from Benalla’s extensive collection of landscape painting, each paired with a contemporary work of art by Aboriginal artists that respond to Country. Together, they present a journey through the Australian landscape – across, below, and above its surface – through varying representations of the land that extend well beyond the physical reality of place.
