Family Art Day – Future Remains: The 2024 Macfarlane Commissions

Thu 11 Jul

Main exhibition gallery

Join ACCA Education for our free, drop-in program for children and their families to enjoy art-making in the galleries inspired by ACCA’s exhibition Future Remains: The 2024 Macfarlane Commissions.

Participants will create their own art works exploring the ideas and materials from Future Remains.

Future Remains: The 2024 Macfarlane Commissions is the fourth edition of a multi-year partnership that supports ambitious new projects by emerging to mid-career artists. This edition showcases seven artists from across Australia – Kim Ah Sam, Andy Butler, Teelah George, Alexandra Peters, Joel Sherwood Spring, Nicholas Smith and Salote Tawale – who variously reclaim, restage and reframe specific material, cultural or ideological inheritances in an effort not only to better understand the past but open up new possibilities for our current and future worlds.

This program is suitable for participants aged 3–10 years. All children are to be accompanied by an adult or carer.
