Undercurrent explores Tasmanian art through the lens of the ocean, tracing the tide lines which connect Tasmanian life and identity across time. The ocean is a powerful force. On an island it can be isolating, but it also connects us to the world beyond. Undercurrent examines how our island’s unique relationship with the sea shapes our past, the present day and our future.
The 2021 Emerging Guest Curators are Soren Risby & Tallulah Eaves. The exhibition Undercurrent is the result of their engagement with the City of Devonport’s Permanent Art Collection
The Emerging Curator Program gives an emerging Tasmanian curator the opportunity to engage and work with the City of Devonport’s Permanent Art Collection, which consists of approximately two thousand 2D and 3D objects. The curator will be given access to the collection for their research and to produce an exhibition of their choosing based on their impression of this rich material.
