Curated by  Dr Donna West Brett.

Unconscious Places: Photography and History explores the conditions of place in the urban-scape and in remote landscapes. Taking the renowned contemporary German photographer, Thomas Struth’s concept of unconscious places as a touchstone, the exhibition considers the ways in which photography can capture traces of events that occurred at a location before the photograph was taken. For Struth, this means that photographs can reveal the unconscious nature of place and its past.

The exhibition features four contemporary Australian photographers whose work engages with themes of place and location including the urban-scape, country landscapes, and remote environments.
