Yhonnie Scarce: The Light of Day | Guided Tours

Join one of our knowledgeable Voluntary Gallery Guides for a guided tour of Yhonnie Scarce: The Light of Day

There is nothing like a personal interaction to spark the imagination. AGWA Gallery Guides bring the artworks to life with their insights into the work, era and artist in this dedicated exhibition guided tour.

Internationally recognised Kokatha and Nukunu artist Yhonnie Scarce brings her luminous and powerful works to AGWA in the largest-ever ensemble of her collected glass and mixed-media works seen in Australia. One of the country's leading contemporary artists, Scarce is known for her large-scale, unforgettable glass installations that reveal hidden stories of Australia's foray into nuclear testing, and the impacts of colonisation on First Nations people, illuminating the artist's desire to bring the darkest shadows of Australia's past into the direct light of day.
