Is our present moment one of rupture, rapture, or revulsion? 

Curated by Maria Kunda and Paul Zika, Dark [Other] Times is a group exhibition of works by a diverse range of Australian artists, which is organised around the polarised moods that characterise living in our “interesting times”: on one hand expansive and ecstatic, psychedelic and transcendental; on the other hand, seemingly stalled—time endured, languidly, with a sense of torpor, ennui or petrification.

Some of the works selected refer to the past, some to the future or some parallel time, or to worlds that are excessive, intensified or heightened—to the point of being tenuous or fragile, or monochrome and vacant.
