PAT BRASSINGTON: Á REBOURS
This major survey of work by acclaimed Tasmanian photo-based artist Pat Brassington is now on at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. This Australian Centre for Contemporary Art touring exhibition is the first extensive tour of Brassington's 30 years of practice and explores her ongoing aesthetic language derived from surrealism and cinema reinterpreted through photography.
THE SKULLBONE EXPERIMENT
A wilderness residency at Skullbone Plains engaged a diverse group of Australian artists in an ancient, remote landscape. Initiated by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, a not-for-profit organisation protecting private land for conservation in Tasmania, this project fostered the link between contemporary art practice and the natural world.
Participating artists: Tim Burns, Joel Crosswell, Julie Gough, Philip Hunter, Janet Laurence, Vera Moller, Imants Tillers, Megan Walch, Richard Wastell, Philip Wolfhagen and John Wolseley. Curated by Philip and Catherine Wolfhagen.
The resulting exhibition opened at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Launceston, and will now travel to Galleries UNSW, COFA. 18 July - 30 August.
