About the exhibition: The “Bimblebox: art – science – nature” touring exhibition is about the Bimblebox Nature Refuge and its environmental, social and scientific significance. It is also an artist group’s creative response to their experience of a unique and threatened environment. The exhibition is rich, dynamic and diverse, including artworks in installation, works on paper, painting, artist books, photography, digital media and sound. Curated by Beth Jackson from a project initiated by artist Jill Sampson, it also includes notes on the ecology and social history of the refuge.
Live outside Brisbane? From July 2014 the exhibition will tour locations including Miles, Toowoomba, Gladstone, Mackay and Rockhampton in Qld, Bunbury in WA, Adelaide and Goolwa in SA, and Armidale and Manly in NSW.
Work with children or young people? There are some great curriculum connections in this exhibition. An Education Resource and Student Activities booklet are available on the Redlands Art Gallery website.
