Upcoming exhibition ZOONOSES

Bayside Gallery is proud to present ZOONOSES, a major touring exhibition showcasing artworks by Dr Nicola Hooper.

Dr Nicola Hooper has taken the darker side of nature and turned it into exquisite, thought-provoking art.

Through drawing and lithography, Nicola uses fairy-tale iconology and rhymes to explore concepts surrounding zoonoses (animal diseases that can infect humans) and how we perceive certain animals in the context of fear and disease.

2 September – 5 November 2023
Bayside Gallery, Brighton Town Hall
Corner Carpenter and Wilson Streets, Brighton VIC 3186

ZOONOSES is a touring exhibition of works by Dr Nicola Hooper presented by Logan Art Gallery, Logan City Council, in partnership with Museums & Galleries Queensland. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program and is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Proudly sponsored by Haymes Paint.
