James Newitt To Catch a Tiger

November 4, 2011 1:00 am to March 12, 2012 1:00 am

Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) November 4 to March 12 Tasmania

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’.
