In 2018 a group of Kangaroo Island artists travelled to Coward Springs, a desert landscape on the edge of the mound spring system and the Old Ghan Line. Island to Outback is the creative outcome of this artist-led residency. The works in this exhibition are reflective of the collaboration and experimentation within the context of a unique and immersive environment; one that is both vastly different and strikingly similar to the artists’ home of Kangaroo Island.
