Join us for the opening of Playing with Matches, an exhibition that uses a spark to illuminate, defy and deconstruct. Playing with Matches is about the potential to be creative and destructive, to create a space of comfort for ourselves or to destroy the tinder of our discontent.

The exhibition includes the works of local and Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, exploring the theme of consequences in their creative practice.
