Monumental Imaginaries

3 October - 15 November, 2024
Monumental Imaginaries explores the complexities and contradictions surrounding rapid energy transition and the climate futures heralded by the imminent changes taking place in the Hunter Valley and Central Coast.

This exhibition champions how regional NSW will adapt to the agenda of renewable energy and highlights how local advocates consider replacements for carbon intensive resources such as coal. It invites visitors to consider the scale of these transformations under way and the important role of visual media - drawing attention to the legacies of fossil fuel dependency and the emerging green visions of the upper and lower Hunter Valley.
