Troubled Waters

Curated by Dr Felicity Fenner, Director, UNSW Galleries

Friday 28 April - Friday 9 June 2017

A major collaborative project between UNSW Science and UNSW Art & Design, Troubled Waters illustrates the complex ecosystem of rivers and oceans by tracing the Murray from its source at Corryong in Victoria to its mouth in South Australia’s Coorong region. Works by multimedia artists, in close collaboration with leading environmental scientist Richard Kingsford, bring environmental research into the gallery to poetically interpret information not easily accessed by non-scientific audiences. Featuring work by: Nici Cumpston; Tamara Dean; Bonita Ely; and Richard Kingsford with Andrew Belletty & Janet Laurence. The exhibition also includes a new 5-channel video installation about the flow of natural resources from Australia to China by filmmaker Georgia Wallace-Crabbe.
