Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

Feel a gravitational pull towards reflection, contemplation and calm.

Take a deep breath as you walk into the Poimena Art Gallery. Slow down your thoughts. In a time of social, political and emotional disruption, this contemplative exhibition will provide space for you to sink away from the stresses of your daily life. Become lost in the orbit of 43 artists from Australia and around the world whose reflective work was produced during 2020.

Curated by Tasmanian artist Paul Snell, this exhibition is void of music and dialogue – enjoy it at your own pace.
