Outside Thoughts centres on the issue of perspective in relation to Australian identity, in both a critical and geographical sense. The connection between aerial viewpoints and the national psyche – a feature of the history of Australian landscape painting – is used as a starting point for the exhibition. Responding to this idea in a broad sense, the participating Australian artists will adopt imagined ‘outside’ perspectives in their work, linking geographical representation with evocations of Australia’s cultural, historical and political character.
