Cross-mending Exhibition is now open at Outer Space!
The term ‘cross-mending’ refers to the archaeological process of piecing together fragments of objects that have been dispersed across a site. Through crossmending, archaeologists can uncover information not only about the fragmented object, but about the history of a specific site.
The exhibition takes ‘crossmending’ as its title to describe how we make meaning from the past; what we inherit and learn from those who have gone before us; how we honour and celebrate them; and how ...

Sam Cranstoun: Impossible Conversations Exhibition at MoB
Inspired by Vanity Fair’s bitingly satirical 1930s series ‘Impossible Interviews’, nine Brisbane residents shared the conversations they would like to have with their chosen figure from Italian history.
Sam has interpreted these conversations through a series of watercolour paintings.
Because the historical figures are unable to take part in the conversations, Sam’s paintings hover in the space between question and answer. He offers glimpses of the conversations through ...
Love & Desire Exhibition is coming to the National Gallery of Australia this December!
In mid-nineteenth century Britain, a group of rebellious young artists emulated the spirit of early Renaissance painting in protest against the art establishment of the era and society at large. Radically flouting convention, these artists revelled in the use of brilliant colour, meticulous detail and exquisite layering. The Pre-Raphaelites drew inspiration from the great love stories of history and literature, the tempestuousness of lustful entanglements, and the wonder of religious icons. ...

Jiří Trnka’s stop motion puppet animations rivalled Walt Disney in both output and international acclaim, earning him the title the ‘Disney of the East’. Karel Zeman took animation to new poetic heights, interweaving animation techniques with live-action filmmaking.
All three overcame the constraints of postwar politics to create extraordinary works which still inform the work of filmmakers like Jan Švankmajer, Terry Gilliam, Tim Burton and Wes Anderson...
