Wildfires. Cyclones. Floods. Droughts. Australia is no stranger to extreme weather. These calamitous events, wreaking human and environmental devastation, are central to our shared history and mythology. Those of particular ferocity acquire names that carry through the ages - the Federation Drought, Cyclone Tracey, Black Saturday. And yet, the colossal power of extreme weather systems that indiscriminately obliterate everything in their path leaves us in a state of awe. Against a backdrop of increasingly frequent extreme weather events, WONDER + DREAD: Art in the Land of Weather Extremes is an ambitious group exhibition of Australian artists that draws on collections from across the country as well as commissioned works to create a thoughtful and nuanced survey of how artists have responded to extreme weather across time. Featured Artists: Glenn Barkley Arthur Boyd Sam Byrne Max Dupain Samuel Elyard Helga Groves Rosemary Laing Marcia Macmillan Aunty Deidre Martin & Nicole Monks Alan McFetridge Joseph McGlennon Lara Merrett Sidney Nolan Susan Norrie Lloyd Rees Michael Riley Cameron Robbins Luke Shadbolt, William Strutt Albert Tucker
