Featuring artists Libby Harward, Archie Moore, Mandy Quadrio and others, the exhibition will critically examine our relationship with water, on a personal and global level.

Together, the artists contemplate water as a record of human emotion through tears and sweat, as a commodity within geopolitical discussion to be traded and speculated on, and as a non-human agent, with a voice, needs, and desires.

Presented as part of Tarnanthi: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art, the exhibition will open to the public from late September, and will consist of installations, sound and screen elements, and workshops, creating an immersive experience for visitors.

For more information on the exhibition, see the ACE Open website.
