A new biennial exhibition
About Hobart Current
Hobart Current will nurture and showcase contemporary artists working across performance, music, film, design, visual art and literature. Expressions of interest for artists to participate in the first exhibition in 2020 are now open.
Rosie Dennis has been appointed. The theme she has chosen is 'liberty'.
Ten artists will be commissioned to create new works in various art forms.
The inaugural exhibition will run from September to November 2020 in Hobart.

'This theme can be interpreted globally and locally, as celebrating the nation as a whole or a neighbourhood. I’m interested in sparking a fuller conversation about who chooses freedom for whom, in what space and during what time.'
