FREE | Bookings required
Jenna Lee’s manipulation of paper is an expression of her mixed ancestry as a Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Gulumerridjin (Larrakia), Wardaman and KarraJarri Saltwater woman. Developed over her recent artist residency in Kyoto, 'To Carry Light' displays sculpture, photography and works on paper that speak of overlapping identities, childhood memory as well as maternal teachings of subject and process.
Globally renowned artist Lawrence English’s sound-based installations investigate the politics of perception. Created from field recordings at Central Queensland sites of heavy industry, ‘The Lullaby of Industry’ traces a contrasting history of industrialisation and encourages audiences to interrogate the temporality of place, the shifting nature of environments we create, and to lean into the strange familiar that exists amidst the everyday.
Tickets for this program are free, but we have introduced the option to purchase a contribution ticket at $5.00 or $10.00 for those who have capacity and wish to help cover costs of organising these programs. If you select a contribution ticket, there's no need to also select an admission ticket (selecting both will reserve two places).
This exhibition is generously supported in partnership with Haymans.
