The Friends of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery cordially invite you to come along to a talk about key works in TMAG’s Tempest exhibition, followed by a viewing.
Dr Mary Knights, newly appointed Senior Curator of Art, will speak to the Friends for the first time, discussing Valerie Sparks’ wallpaper installation in the Salon Gallery titled Prospero’s Island.
Jane Stewart, a familiar face to Friends members, will talk about another Tempest commission, Tacita Dean’s ambitious chalk drawing on blackboard titled When first I raised the tempest.
Afterwards the talks you will have the opportunity to view the works in the company of the curators.
If you would like to purchase a Tempest catalogue, the TMAG Shop will be open after the talks, offering a 10% discount to Friends members on all stocked items.
