University of Tasmania Presents
Re-live the horror of the 1919 Spanish Flu in this searing art-meets-science exhibition that shines a spotlight on modern attitudes to disease. Pandemic features powerful contemporary art including a ceramic installation about breast cancer where viewers can take away pieces of the work and an immersive light show depicting the destructive beauty of human viruses magnified one billion times.
Combining Tasmanian archival material from the 1919 pandemic with current immunology and disease control resources, Pandemic invites sincere dialogue around the current pro and anti-vaccination debate. A deeply moving and utterly infectious exploration of contagions.
