Hunter Red: Corpus

Local, national and international artists consider the elements of life, death, blood, reproduction and mortality in ‘Corpus’. With the evocative associations of the colour red as a theme, this exhibition is charged with symbolic interpretations of the beauty and fragility of humanity, interpreting diverse perspectives across the fields of painting, photography, sculpture, works on paper and video.

Artists include Vernon Ah Kee, Anne Ferran, Francisco Goya, Bill Henson, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Nell, David Rosetzky, Judy Watson and Juz Kitson among others.
