Art for takayna
Bob Brown Foundation
Wednesday 22 March – Tuesday 11 April 2023, 10am – 6pm
Opening Event: Wednesday 22 March 2023 6pm
Over 50 artworks made in response to takayna/Tarkine – a call to action and visual reminder of what is at stake, and what we stand to lose.
takayna / Tarkine, in north west Tasmania, is one of Earth’s last truly wild places. But this globally significant rainforest is more threatened than ever before – by logging, mining and off-road vehicle damage to the natural environment.
Art for takayna showcases the beauty and fragility of Australia’s largest temperate rainforest, takayna. Over the course of one long weekend, artists explore a range of landscapes, from the expansive coastline of pristine beaches, to the giant eucalyptus and myrtle forests, and the rugged and wild rivers of takayna.
These artworks are a call to action – a visual reminder of what is at stake, and what we stand to lose.
