The Landscape Awry – Symposium
The Landscape Awry is a two day event at TarraWarra Museum of Art and its surrounds. It features installations and presentations by authors, artists and academics about the ways in which we ‘see’ the landscape. The symposium has as its starting point the very terrain upon which the TWMA is built in the Yarra Valley.
This symposium has been co-convened by Victoria Lynn, Director, TarraWarra Museum of Art and Professor Nikos Papastergiadis, School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne. The symposium has received support from Tourism Victoria, RACV Club Healesville, and the Research Unit in Public Culture, University of Melbourne.
