NETS Victoria to nationally tour ‘Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce’

Thursday 18 Mar, 2021

NETS Victoria is so excited to announce our new touring exhibition, ‘Looking Glass: Judy Watson and Yhonnie Scarce’. Developed by TarraWarra Museum of Art and curated by Hetti Perkins, it is an important and timely exhibition which brings together two of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists—Waanyi artist, Judy Watson and Kokatha and Nukunu artist, Yhonnie Scarce.

At its heart, the exhibition is both a love song and a lament for Country; a fantastical alchemy of the elemental forces of earth, water, fire and air.

‘Looking Glass’ will be touring nationally over the next three years, visiting venues across Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland. Follow the link in our bio to the exhibition page for more information and a full touring itinerary.

‘Looking Glass’ is developed by TarraWarra Museum of Art and Ikon Gallery with Curator Hetti Perkins. Touring nationally with NETS Victoria.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program, is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, as well as receiving development assistance from NETS Victoria’s Exhibition Development Fund 2019, supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, and by Creative Partnerships Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund.

NETS Victoria would like to thank all of the donors who so generously contributed to the ‘Looking Glass’ fundraising campaign through the Australian Cultural Fund.

It is on a reflective surface and represents an Australian bush banana. Two gaping holes have punctured the glass, giving the piece a wounded quality.
