Human Becomings

Lex Randolph
11 March - 26 March

Welcome to a museum of real and imaginary body parts. Made from everyday textile materials, they are soft, comforting and familiar. Displayed inside specimen jars, you can objectify, quantify, analyse, and explore them without being caught up in the emotional connections, memories and experiences of our human bodies.
Examine them; you might find yourself.

Cast Away

Ruth Halbert
10 June - 25 June

How did you get here? To broaden discussion of Australia’s relationship to refugees, Ruth Halbert asks old and new Australians to contribute to a growing collection of arrival stories, stitched into fragile boat-like forms and suspended in a web of wool threads materialising space and time. This is the first gallery component of a process investigating remaking a time-based project of political letter-writing into simple handmade objects.
