Finding Our Words is a powerful exhibition exploring new possibilities of expression through a variety of artworks including canvas paintings, watercolour, drawings, ceramic, poetry, video and audio as well as an immersive projection room.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings in the Poetry Forest – an interactive and suspended installation where everyone is encouraged to contribute to a community poem that will evolve and grow throughout the duration of the exhibition.
A number of free public programs will take place during the exhibition including:
• Poetry Reading (Thursday 4 July, 6pm-8pm) with a number of artists featured in the exhibition including Sandy Jeffs, Tessa Gatt-Rutter and Gudrun Hinze.
• Open House Melbourne (Sunday 28 July, 11am-4pm). For the first time The Dax Centre opens its doors for Open House Melbourne allowing visitors to enjoy an exclusive guided tour of Finding Our Words, a behind-the-scenes tour of the curatorial area and the opportunity to view additional works from the Cunningham Dax Collection.
