If you like contemporary artwork then you will love this new exhibition at Hazelhurst! RocoColonial is a colourful collection of painting, sculpture, design and fashion by fifteen contemporary Australian artists. The exhibition is inspired by the ideas and issues of the 18th century Rococo era of art and design, and the concurrent period of Colonialism. In 1770 while Lieutenant Cook was charting the east coast of Australia, on the other side of the world Marie Antoinette was marrying the future Louis XVI of France, this moment coincidentally marking the end of the rococo and the beginning of the colonial. The exhibition includes many new works from artists Deborah Kelly, Jenny Watson, Louise Zhang, Jennifer Leahy, Belem Lett and Techa Noble. On until 30 June. Read more
