Presented by the School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania, in association with Dark Mofo, Panopticon featured twenty individual installations by Art, Music and Theatre students from the School of Creative Arts.
Each installation or 'cell' showcased a work interpreting the Dark Mofo theme of silence for 2017. Every Panopticon cell contained at least one live body at all times during exhibition hours, and was visible from the ground floor windows of the Hunter Street campus.
Join us for Panopticon II as part of Dark Mofo 2018.
