Curated by Maria Kunda and Paul Zika, Dark [Other] Times is a group exhibition of works by Australian artists, organised around the polarised moods that characterise living in ‘interesting times’: on one hand expansive and ecstatic, psychedelic and transcendental; on the other hand, seemingly stalled – time endured, languidly, with a sense of torpor, ennui or petrification. Presented by Dark Mofo and the School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania.
