Gabriella Hirst: Darling Darling

After two years of closure, the newly redeveloped ACMI is opening with their first solo art exhibition, Darling Darling by Gabriella Hirst.

Hirst's two-channel video art piece presents two contrasting visions of the Barka Darling River in dialogue with each other: the detailed work by art conservators to restore the 19th century painting, The flood in the Darling, 1890, by WC Piguenit, and the environmental crisis facing the river today. Darling Darling is a timely investigation into the nature of environmental care and neglect.

This is a free exhibition running at ACMI from 11 Feb – 30 May 2021. Timed-entry ticket bookings are required.
