Artefacts from the Curlew Republic is an exhibition in three parts presented jointly by Redland Art Gallery and Redland Museum. Consisting of three large central works and interrelated smaller works, a recorded soundscape, live music performance, talks and workshops it offers an engaging and multi layered experience for visitors. The three exhibitions overlap in content and concept, visually and musically across the gallery and museum. They are linked together by a shared philosophy and aesthetic, the result of a ten-year collaboration between Redlands musician, instrument inventor-visual artist Colin Offord and video artist-performer Yilan Yeh.
Exhibition presented simultaneously at Redland Art Gallery and Redland Museum.
This Project is supported by Arts Queensland and the Regional Arts Development Fund. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and Redland City Council partnership to support Local Arts and Culture
