An exciting partnership between the Art Gallery of WA, Chicago-based Terra Foundation for American Art and the University of Western Australia sees fifteen American landscape paintings shown in the context of their Australian counterparts.

Continents apart, yet influenced by the same global artistic trends, this exhibition highlights the cross-pollination of ideas and influences, exploring the referential artistic practices intrinsic to the development of art movements across the centuries.

Accompanied by an undergraduate course at the University of Western Autralia and symposium at AGWA, this display strikes up new conversations between the US and Australia, and takes the longstanding partnership between UWA and AGWA in a new and exciting direction.
