On Albatross Island

Showing Tuesday 05 March – Sunday 16 June, 2019

The On Albatross Island project was conceived as an initial flagship program to launch the Tasmanian Albatross Fund and raise awareness about the species and conservation initiatives. Artists Richard Wastell and Matthew Newton were given a unique opportunity to accompany a team of scientists on extended expeditions to remote Albatross Island, off the North Western tip of Tasmania. This exhibition showcases Matthew Newtons individual artistic responses to this unique environment while speaking to the important scientific based conservation work being done there.
