The story of the human condition is one of emancipation—and incarceration. With Swiss curator Barbara Polla at the helm, this new exhibition at TMAG breaks open ideas of imprisonment and ‘doing time’—from the psychological and social prisons we construct for ourselves and others to physical confinement in spaces like jails and detention centres.
Come one, come all as the exhibition opens on Friday 8 June with an intense durational performance by Tasmanian electronic media artist Matt Warren. He’ll be responding to artworks from the exhibition.
Curated by Barbara Polla with Olivier Varenne and Mary Knights
