Lisa Deanne Smith, curator of The Sunshine Eaters, will lead a free, in-depth tour discussing each work and the over-all exhibition premise. All are welcome.
The Sunshine Eaters is an original multi-sensory exhibition that highlights how artists and designers look to the land and its plants, flowers
and trees as a means to imagine and conjure hope in the face of local and global crises.
Featuring work by: Shary Boyle, Nick Cave, Robert Holmes, Jim Holyoak, Brian Jungen, Jessica Karuhanga, Alexandra Kehayoglou, Nina Leo and Moez Surani, Tony Matelli, Alanis Obomsawin, Ebony G. Patterson and Winnie Truong. Curated by Lisa Deanne Smith.
Exhibition runs January 10 to April 15, 2018.
