Agriculture As Art- PA Yeomans Exhibition Opens In Sydney
The Yeomans Project opens on November 28th at the Art Gallery of NSW. The exhibition highlights the work of Australian farmer and engineer PA Yeomans whose work is now used on farms throughout the world. Yeomans developed the Keyline System- an agricultural method that increases soil fertility, conserves water and regenerates land.
Ian Milliss and Lucas Ihlein, curators of the exhibition have gathered images, writing, films and educational videos as part of the exhibition.
The exhibition will also feature an old Yeomans Plow, books and artifacts lent by PA Yeomans’ daughters, a large chalk map of one of Yeomans’ properties, live discussions and a Field Trip to an early Yeomans experimental farm outside of Sydney (free, but bookings required).
Here’s to you, PA Yeomans who practiced the art of transformation with soil and water.
