Visual & performing arts

Art exhibition
Melbourne artist Setken presents his first exhibition of paintings in 5 years at
Brunswick East’s newest art space, Dollhouse Gallery.
With new works not exhibited previously, his previous exhibition NeoPharaonic was
made into a documentary that won awards in film festivals internationally.
Unique in-exhibition features
Adventures In Zoomorphic Idolatry is an exhibition curated by the artist himself
with the specific intention of encouraging visitors to the exhibition space to
experience the paintings in person.
For those that are curious to know a little more about each of the pieces on show, a
QR code for each of the 14 works opens a secret webpage with tantalizing content
and insights.
For disabled and regional Victoria visitors, an exclusive virtual tour of the exhibition
is available on request to the gallery.
The exhibition runs for 2 weeks July 8 – 21.
The gallery is open concordant with shop opening hours.
