On display at the Queen Victoria Art Gallery from 15 September to 2 February 2019. 

This instalment of QVMAG's Artist and the Collection series focuses on the work of three Tasmanian visual artists: Jennifer Marshall, Barbie Kjar and Milan Milojevic. 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of this group of artists collaborating on project.

Following the first version of Undercurrents for Ten Days on the Island 2015 in which the trio drew on the Tasmanian Maritime Museum's collection, this second iteration now examines the maritime connections throughout the QVMAG collection.

Each artist has examined our drawing, sketch book and print collections including works by Glover and Gould, to create new interpretations of the varied and extensive collection.
