A new exhibition curated by Elizabeth Hallam held in Melbourne

art death disposal exhibition

Art, Death & Disposal, an exhibition curated by Elizabeth Hallam, in collaboration with the DeathTech Research Team at the University of Melbourne, and artists in Australia, opened on 12 January.

How might disposal of the deceased be designed in the 21st century? Imagining beyond burial and cremation – in a world of rapid social, technological and environmental change – seven artists respond to this question, presenting moving and provocative new work.

Further information about the exhibition is available on the University of Melbourne website.
