Arboreal explores the way trees are more than just biochemical entities but living cultures within their own right and capable of collecting narratives of historical and contemporary importance. The exhibition designed as vignettes, will incorporate the indoor museum space with that of the outdoor Arboretum museum to engage viewers with the different ways we understand and interact with nature
Taking a social history view of art, tree narratives, which have touched diverse and connected themes of exploration, colonialism, exploitation, environmental degradation and indigenous sacred sites and knowledge, are of vital importance to our current understanding of the environmental crisis we now all face.

The third and final exhibition in TMAG’s Star/Dust series of contemporary art installations, Newitt’s To Catch a Tiger is part museum display, part public archive and part film set. The installation explores both the historical evidence and our collective memory of the Tasmanian Tiger through performances, images, objects and stories relating to the elusive legend.
To Catch a Tiger examines the human compulsion to connect with something which is just out of reach. It creates a point of connection between issues and opinions related to conservation, wildness, Tasmanian identity and scientific ‘truth’.
