    The Long Kiss Goodbye

    8 February - 9 May 2020

    For The Long Kiss Goodbye a group of artists transforms familiar materials and symbols into complex meditations on attraction, repulsion, loss and hope. Studio scraps become an epic patchwork of memories, elegant painted forms disguise weighty histories and simple actions become poignant rituals.

    Presented in association with Perth Festival.

    24SEVEN: The Wunder Years
    By Zachary Bruce

    8 February - 9 May 2020

    The Wunder Years by Western Australian artist and musician Zachary Bruce uses 8mm film and a lush soundscape to explore the ways in which we often use narratives from films, books and cultural myths to try to make sense of the incomprehensible or seemingly arbitrary aspects of life.

    The work is showcased as part of 24SEVEN, our platform for delivering a selection of the most exciting video work created by contemporary artists in Australia.
