To July 18 An Animistic Dialectic solo exhibition by established contemporary sculptor Glen Clarke. Clarke’s practice expands the field of contemporary sculpture through intricate collage-based works that combine folded banknotes and precise colourful cut-outs of various military hardware. Artworks consider religious and political themes in contrast to the hostilities of war, individually placed elements denoting the perilous balance between the profits and loss attributed to war.

To Aug 30 Calculating Infinity by Josh Foley.
How many ways can you interpret an art collection spanning centuries? Award-winning artist Josh Foley has always been fascinated by QVMAG. So when we invited him to explore our Visual Art stores, he delighted in finding treasures. He took over a gallery and spectacularly translated classic works by Wolfhagen, Glover and Gould onto the blank walls before our very eyes.
