FREE ADMISSION | GALLERY OPEN: Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am – 3.30pm | Closed Monday, Tuesday & Public Holidays

POSTWORLD features Australian artists who create parallel universes.      

Audiences will be invited into playful, sublime, poetic, and cautionary explorations of contemporary works and installations by nationally significant artists including those based in North Queensland. Drawing on the detritus of the human epoch, these worlds have their own internal iconographies and languages existing in alternate time and space. The exhibition engages with contemporary discourse in object-oriented ontology, vegetal thinking, and the post-Anthropocene. New fictions rendered in the past, present, and future provide alternate perspectives on the environment, gender, and capitalist hegemony.

POSTWORLD is a touring initiative co-curated by Kate O’Hara and Daniel Qualischefski, developed by Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts (Umbrella), commissioned by NAFA and toured by Museums & Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD). This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program and by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

Umbrella and M&G QLD are supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Both organisations are also supported by the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation and receive funding from Creative Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund.

Exhibition on display 3 August - 20 October.
