Immerse yourself in this playful and surrealist exhibition.

Movement, light and colour come together for this exhibition that will take you to another world.

Inspired by Melbourne artist Belle Bassin, who walked the streets of Paris wearing only umbrellas, this playful exhibition explores surrealism and features contemporary Australian artists such as Minna Gilligan, Peter Cripps, Michelle Ussher, Dale Frank and others.

Through the mediums of moving image, performance, painting, collage, sculpture and object-based works, artists have created multi-dimensional and dream-like worlds. Performances are influenced by Picasso, 1960s and 1970s counter-culture and fashion, and even internet selfie culture. All the works in the exhibition explore ideas around perception, time and dreams.

An extensive performance program accompanies this exhibition.
