all things are water, curated by Meryl Ryan and Naomi Riddle, takes water as its defining feature. Moving between video, installation, photography and painting, this exhibition rethinks water as an environment, as a site of escape, as an emotional state, and as a necessity for survival. But all things are water is also an elegy. That is, the works contained in this exhibition speak to the impending ecological crisis, and a landscape increasingly defined by an absence of water rather than its surplus.
Featured artists include: Tom Blake, Dale Collier, Ellen Dahl, Michaela Gleave, Hannah Jenkins, Todd McMillan, Talia Smith, and Angela Tiatia.
Exhibition Opens 6pm—8pm, Saturday 7 December 2019
