Join Curatorial Assistant Emma and Information Officer Wendy for a touch and audio described tour of the current exhibition Stars start falling. The tour will be followed by a painting workshop in TELC, inspired by Salome Tanuvasa's paintings in Gallery 3. Experiment with mark making to create gestural abstract forms of colour on unstretched canvas.

Stars start falling brings together existing and newly commissioned works by Teuane Tibbo, Ani O’Neill and Salome Tanuvasa, many seen here in public for the first time.

A space to dream, a space to remember, a space to work, a space to make connections. Stars start falling brings together work that examines processes of memory, learning, and knowledge as responses to the artists’ engagement with the everyday and the extraordinary. Made in the garden, around the kitchen table, in a moment stolen in the dark of night, or as the duties of domestic life continue to tick along in the background, the artworks in this exhibition examine the cultural, social, and political imaginations that shape our relationship to place.
