History Repeats, Artists in Conversation
Join the artists for an insightful look at the exhibition and a discussion around the impact on their creative practice the experience at the Q Station and having lived through quarantine has had on them.
History Repeats: Three contemporary artists have drawn upon the site and stories of the former quarantine station at North Head to create an immersive exhibition experience in response to issues around migration, quarantine and place. Working with paper, textiles and paint, Jo Neville, Julie Paterson and Fiona Chandler have each created forty panels representing the original forty-day quarantine period of detention or isolation imposed upon ships, people, animals or plants suspected of carrying infectious or contagious diseases. This timely exhibition is presented in partnership with Q Station, Manly.
