‘It’s hot’… it’s a saying we are all familiar with. In Australia, as the climate changes and our summers get warmer, how do we prepare to face the heat?

In Swelter, Australian artists consider how heat affects our bodies, our communities and our planet. New commissions and existing works share different perspectives of the effects of heat on the body and how to beat it.

Swelter features commissioned works by artists Hailey Atkins, Bella Deary, Amelia Hine and Dylan Mooney. Alongside works by Tarryn Gill, Catherine Parker, Kenny Pittock, Grant Stevens, Salote Tawale, and Abigail Varney.

Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
