This exhibition considers different cultural responses to and perceptions of the Australian outback as an enigmatic, mysterious, spirited and haunted terrain. It explores the dark undercurrents that inform mythologies of the Australian landscape across Indigenous and non-indigenous art works. It presents spiritual and mythological stories of the land and reflects upon how the outback can provoke feelings of foreboding and maintain an element of unsettling mystery.
