Artists Thinking About Science

July 1993

Artists Thinking About Science was an exhibition that toured Australia as part of the Great Australian Science Show in 1994, curated by David O'Halloran. The exhibition was shown at the Royal Exhibition Buildings, Melbourne, The Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, and The Exhibition Building Showgrounds, Brisbane. It was supported through Visions of Australia, the Commonwealth's national touring exhibitions grant program. The artists included were: Linda Dement, Jan Nelson, Richard Stanford, Kevin Todd and John Tonkin.

The artists in this exhibition do not simply illustrate scientific principles with their work; they are dealing with attitudes and ideas about science, and not necessarily producing images that science may regard as correct or factual.
