Bimblebox: art – science – nature looks at the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, its environmental, social and scientific significance and an artist group’s creative response to their experience of this unique but threatened environment from the impact of mining.

The exhibition is rich, dynamic and diverse, including artworks in installation, works on paper, painting, artist books, photography, digital media and sound. Bimblebox: art – science – nature also incorporates aspects of scientific and environmental research and social history of the site.

The launch will include a performance from Alison Clouston and Boyd, and opening remarks from Dr Rod Fensham from the Queensland Herbarium and the University of Queensland’s Biological Sciences Department.  (There's a flyer you can send to friends here, and a facebook event here.)
