Based on the book of the same name by Prue Gibson, The Rapture of Death features major works by some of Australia’s leading artists. Like the book, this unusual exhibition is a philosophical enquiry into the use of deathly imagery in contemporary art and investigates why fear of death is an intrinsic part of life. The exhibition will be opened with a talk by author Prue Gibson.
