13 April – 30 July 2017
The saying ‘once the dust settles’ is essentially optimistic. It assumes that present difficulties will be resolved and that a better future beckons. However, not all difficulties diminish, while some lie dormant only to reappear. This exhibition centres on works by contemporary artists who probe at cultural, environmental and psychological histories that remain unresolved. Others reflect on traditions that reverberate or are threatened. All works are drawn from The University of Queensland Art Collection.
