In 1963, the colour of the Risdon Prison walls led The Mercury to dub it ‘The Pink Palace’. Despite its slow fade into beige, the nickname stuck.
Over the past six months, four Tasmanian artists have been working in collaboration with four Risdon Prison inmates to create a series of new video works examining time on the inside. The results include a potato currency, virtual inmates, endurance performance by proxy and a horse named Salvadore.
Exhibition opening: Friday 8 June, 5pm- 9pm
Exhibition dates: 9 – 24 June, Wednesday – Sunday 5pm – 9pm
Exhibition venue: old Good Year Tyre and Auto Warehouse, Corner Argyle and Bathurst
