In 1939 Frank Hurley’s short film, Isle of Many Waters, promoted Tasmania’s historic sites and rugged natural landscape, encouraging tourists to ‘holiday amidst the lovely waterways, crags and vales of sunny Tasmania’. Inspired by Hurley’s travelogue, the exhibition Isle of Many Waters presents old home movies, news reels and documentaries alongside contemporary video art to explore Tasmania’s waterways - the rivers, lakes and oceans - as sites of mesmerising beauty, personal journeys, contested power and social playgrounds.
