This collection display at QAG, dedicated to Indigenous Australian art, explores ideas underpinning the Dreaming - or as seminal Australian anthropologist and essayist WEH Stanner posited, the 'Everywhen' - where knowledge and history from all times combine to inform contemporary and future existence. Major works from the Gallery's collection of Indigenous Australian art from the turn of the nineteenth century to the present provide visitors with a grounding in the history, ideas and art of our first peoples and cultures.

Horse in War

Toowoomba, Toowoomba Area
  • Free WiFi
18 March – 6 December 2015
Horse in War focuses on the lives of those who worked with, and risked death alongside, the 120,000 horses of the Australian Army during the First World War. Through photographs, diaries and original objects, Horse in War tells the stories of some of the thousands of skilled horsemen from rural Queensland and across Australia who joined the war efforts. One such story is that of Esmond Lecchi, who served throughout the big Light Horse offences of 1917-1918, and was also a keen photographer. Esmond's photos provide a rare insight into life on the ground for the young Australian soldiers and the bond between soldier and horse. Warfare may never again rely on the trust, sacrifice and mateship of the bushman and his horse. Horse in War is a fascinating insight into this significant time in our nation's history. This project is proudly supported by the Queensland Government.

Nothling's paintings invite you into his endearing neighbourhood in a series that documents Louisa Street where the artist has lived for 14 years. In The last street in Highgate Hill, Nothling imagines life behind the façade of 38 houses that line his street on the fringe of the Brisbane suburb of Highgate Hill. Gathering clues, bowerbird-style, his work is based on observations from his daily walks when he soaks up the incremental and dramatic changes to the households and gardens he passes. The work captures a moment in time, collaged together with lashings of humour and a unique aesthetic that will captivate and charm. It is a deeply personal interpretation of inner Brisbane that will resonate well beyond its geographical confines to explore a sense of community, love for this city and all its unique locales.
