Hope Dies Last, Margaret Lawrence Gallery & Gertrude Contemporary, 5 October – 16 November

October 5, 2019

Buxton Contemporary Collection artists Tony Garifalakis, Tracey Moffatt and Mutlu Çerkez feature in new exhibition Hope Dies Last: Art at the End of Optimism curated by Mark Feary and presented in partnership with Melbourne International Arts Festival.

Hope Dies Last is a curated exhibition of Australian and international contemporary art presented across two sites, Gertrude Contemporary and the Margaret Lawrence Gallery. The project focuses on how artists consider the depletion of optimism, how they might envisage the end of days, and how they make sense of these tumultuous times. The project brings together works by leading Australian and international artists, as if to choreograph a collective swan song of lament.
