Tempest was a major art exhibition conceived and developed by internationally acclaimed curator Juliana Engberg.
With its roots in the Shakespearean play of the same name, Tempest transformed TMAG’s galleries into a world of shipwrecks and stormy seas, romance, discovery, tragedy, and magic, creating a new and exciting experience for visitors.
Historic works from TMAG and other state collections were shown alongside contemporary works by international and Australian artists including Tacita Dean, Valerie Sparks, Fiona Tan, William Kentridge, Victor Alimpiev, Hernan Bas, Mariele Neudecker, Rodney Graham, Pat Brassington, Rosemary Laing, Paul Wood, Ricky Swallow, Kit Wise, and David Stephenson.
Presented by TMAG in association with Detached Cultural Organisation and Dark Mofo.
Dates: June 10 – November 11, 2016
Location: Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery
