Considering the Land

Peta Clancy and Jo Scicluna consider the land from a First Nation and a first-generation migrant artist’s perspective. This exhibition brings together artworks by these 2 artists to invite conversation about the land on which we all live, work and play.

Peta Clancy is a descendant of the Bangerang Nation from south-eastern Australia. She is a senior lecturer at Monash University’s Art Design & Architecture, and was awarded the inaugural Koorie Heritage Trust’s Fostering Koorie Art and Culture grant. She collaborated with Dja Dja Wurrung Traditional Custodians for the Undercurrent project which was exhibited at the Koorie Heritage Trust in 2019.

Jo Scicluna is a Naarm-based artist and educator across fine art and design, completing her PhD at Monash University (MADA) in 2021. The project, Where The Land Lies (Gippsland Art Gallery, 2019), developed in consultation with Gunaikurnai community representatives, established a foundational process of observing respect for Country in Scicluna’s artwork.

In honour of Reconciliation Week 2022, come and consider this land upon which we all live, through the works of these 2 artists, and join us in this space for discussion, understanding and reconciliation.
