Southern Western

Curated by Gareth Hart and Jane Polkinghorne

Southern Western explores and connects with the particularity and peculiarity of this place, Mildura. Positioned in the Victorian Mallee, along the banks of the Barka/ Millewa/ Tongala (Murray Darling rivers), the very nature of this place has inspired this project as a means to reflect on and explore the rich complexity of Australia and its histories through an expansive lens.
