Not Even The Poets

The title of the exhibition is from a quote by Zelda Fitzgerald, an accomplished author, dance and artist who has been relegated to history as the tragic, mentally unstable muse of F. Scott. In full it is "No one, not even the poets, know how much a heart can hold." The artists in this exhibition have encountered experiences as caregivers for loved ones, with the work being created in response to those experiences including the challenges and the moments of grace and love that transcend illnesses. This exhibition will offer opportunities for educational activities, community participatory activities, panel discussions and workshops responding to the theme to take place during the exhibition.

Inspired by the surrealist French poet, Joe Bousquet, the works in this exhibition deal metaphorically with ideas around loss, of looking to the past, and of using personal experiences as a means of connecting to the universal through symbolic and archetypal imagery.
