ABOUT THE TELLING TALES EXHIBITION:

Breaking away from a traditional linear format, 'Telling Tales' explores the varied, inventive approaches taken by leading Australian and international artists to narrative form. Using diverse materials including light, fog and hand-typed text, their works pick apart conventional storytelling approaches to reconsider ideas around structure, duration, repetition and fragmentation.

Questions around authorship, truth and fiction emerge through some artists’ works whilst others embrace oral histories and live durational events, including shadow puppetry and opera, to convey their stories.
