Figuring Landscapes, moving image work from the UK and Australia, multiple venues (2008-2009)

Tate Modern, London
Friday 6 February – Sunday 8 February 2009

Figuring Landscapes is a collection of moving image works that has grown from the Political and cultural history that links Australia and the UK. The 58 featured artists address questions of nation and identity as well as ecological survival, post-industrialism, gender, the touristic gaze, and uniquely in Australia the social, political and cultural status of Indigenous people in a post-colonial society.
