Event description

Description

Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power brings together artists who conjure ideas related to witchcraft, sorcery and magical practices. The exhibition offers a space for intuition, rituals, collective happenings, incantations, and peripheral activity — practices recurrently dismissed as mere magical phenomena.

A series of renowned historic etchings counterbalance new artworks that depict or disrupt ‘witch iconography’ and impressions of witchcraft. Second Sight gives precedence to inexplicable occurrences, expressions of difference, the supernatural, sexual power, and the potency of the natural world in ways that are bodily and visceral yet also incorporeal.


This exhibition has been formed through a partnership between UQ Art Museum and UQ’s Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH).
