A garden can be a place of contemplation, cultivation, or control. In a world of increasing urbanisation and biotechnological advancement what will the future garden be? What roles will the creatures in it - human and non-human play?
Creatures of the Future Garden is a group exhibition of international, national, local, established and emerging inter-disciplinary artists, whose work investigates an engagement with the non-human through a merging of art and science.
Curated by Donna Franklin, participating artists:
George Gessert (US), Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg (UK), Angela Singer (NZ), Trish Adams (QU), Svenja J. Kratz (QU), Tarsh Bates, Donna Franklin, Kirsten Hudson The Made Generation Collective: Gary & Susie Cass, Jesse Brown, Nicholas Lozanovski, Sasha Whittle.
