A Journey to Freedom exhibition opens at TMAG

Elise Archer, Minister for Arts and Corrections

A new contemporary art exhibition exploring issues relating to incarceration opens today, as part of this year’s Dark Mofo Festival.

A Journey to Freedom presents a range of thought-provoking artworks providing audiences with an opportunity to reflect on the nature of imprisonment at both a personal, local and global level.

Guest curated by Swiss born Barbara Polla, A Journey to Freedom brings together new and recent works by contemporary national and international artists working across installation, sculpture, video, photography and virtual reality.

The exhibition is presented across the museum’s temporary galleries and transitional spaces, with a special late night opening featuring a performance by Tasmanian sound artist, Matt Warren.

I am delighted that TMAG is once again partnering with Dark Mofo and MONA to present this exciting new exhibition.

A Journey to Freedom opens from 6:00 pm with additional late night openings programmed throughout the festival between 15-17 June and 21-23 June.

The exhibition continues at TMAG until 29 July.
