Stranger than fiction – Exhibition

Saturday, 29 June - Saturday, 31 August
Accessible Toilet
Wheelchair Accessible

Stranger than fiction brings together artists engaged in troubling the boundaries between reality and fiction.

Across film, sculpture, printmaking and performance, each artist employs material and narrative experiments to reckon with the impossible challenge of representing a singular way of portraying the world or existing within it, and the absurdity in trying.

With new work alongside existing projects, Stranger than fiction features artists based locally, nationally and internationally, Archie Barry (Vic), Teresa Busuttil (SA), Nicholas Currie (Vic), Andrea Illés (Vic), Rosie Isaac (Vic), Basim Magdy (Egypt/Switzerland), Rä di Martino (Italy), and Sammaneh Pourshafighi (Vic), curated by Joanna Kitto.
