Exhibitions

Hurstville Museum & Gallery is currently closed, but don't worry, we're reinventing some of our exhibitions so you can enjoy them from home!


Keep in Touch

In the last month, the world as we know it has been turned upside down due to COVID-19. Our usual ways of keeping in touch with friends over coffee, regular family dinners and water cooler chats at the office, have all but disappeared overnight. In these times, it’s more vital than ever to stay in touch, and today we are lucky enough to have the technology to talk face to face with people all over the world via apps like FaceTime, Zoom and Skype, however communication over the years has changed greatly.

In our online exhibition ‘Keep in Touch’, we will look back on how communication has evolved in the St George area, and give you activities to stay engaged with us and your friends and family while you #stayhome.

Hurstville Community Garden was established in 2006 on an ex-lawn bowls site. This garden has 30 organic-friendly plots and approximately 50 members, providing an opportunity for people to connect with each other. The Garden is a place of peace and friendship where local residents regularly drop by for a stroll and to soak up its beauty.

Hurstville Museum & Gallery is looking forward to showcasing Soupsue's exhibition, 'Who stood here', when we reopen!Soupsue-image-(1).PNG

Soupsue's work reacts to the remnants of Australian history and people that are imprinted on the local landscape. The audience is asked to reflect on the multitudes of layered lives that are interwoven in the emotional and physical landscape of Australia; wanting us to investigate what we remember, what we deny, what we have forgotten and what we leave behind.
