Anthropocene Noir

Erin Linhart, Lola Page, Emily Parsons-Lord, Dexter Rosengrave, Elissa Wilson.


Finding a point of engagement with the Anthropocene, curator Eva Nilssen has invited five artists to respond to that theme in relation to noir fiction. As these artists bravely explore their own complicity in destruction it is hoped that the nature of our relationships with each other, as humans and non-humans sharing a potentially dark and perhaps thrilling new era, can be brought into focus.

OPENING: 6pm, Friday 3 May 2019 // EXHIBITION: 4 May - 26 May 2019 // LOCATION: Contemporary Art Tasmania // A FREE EVENT
