Proof of Life

23 September - 14 October 2017
Salamanca Arts Centre,
Hobart, Australia

At the core of this exhibition is a provocation: the world is on a path to environmental, political, economic and social disaster.

Proof of Life was the Salamanca Arts Centre's 2018 Major Curated Exhibition.

September 2014 - April 2015
Logan City, Queensland
