City of Melbourne – Fiona Hall: Uneasy Seasons

For the first time in her career, one of Australia’s most significant artists, Fiona Hall has created an exhibition especially for teenagers and kids. Uneasy Seasons reflects Hall’s lifelong passion for the natural world and her concerns about growing pressures on the environment. Divided into two distinct environments, the exhibition space will feature two large-scale tree-houses, providing a canopy whereby young visitors can participate in art-making activities to express their thoughts about the natural world. Created for young children, the first space offers a brightly lit tree house nestled amongst warm hued wallpaper signalling new beginnings. Taking cues from the springtime atmosphere, children are invited to make creatures using a range of collage materials that reference different animal and habitat textures. Visitors are invited to display their artwork, populating the tree-house with an array of colourful and imaginative creatures. In contrast, the second space is a dark, forest-like environment for teenagers – a night-time space in which to contemplate the vastness of the universe. Participants are invited to respond to the space with their own thoughts about the world.   Admission: Free Booking not required.
