Time and Tides
Art in the Torres Strait Islands, Queensland
Sep 2017 - Jul 2018

The Torres Strait is a beguiling region of volcanic islands, coral cays and richly coloured submerged reefs, fringed by turquoise water, under pale blue skies. In ‘Time and Tides’, Torres Strait Islander artists, including those living on mainland Australia, embrace the beauty of the environment and reflect the diversity and depth of the culture, particularly its history of making powerful ceremonial and decorative objects.
