Through the works of over 20 Australian artists and artist collectives, alongside historic works drawn from the SAM Collection, FRESHWATER highlights how water remains central to identity, and to how and where we live.

Issues range from ecological concerns about rising salinity, healthy ecologies, refuse and waste, to the inevitable contest around sustainable balances between conservation concerns and agricultural needs. Rivers and waterways also have cultural and historical significance - sustaining work and life and as constantly flowing reminders of stories that stretch across time and place.

Through a range of media, from video and moving image, works on paper, installation and sound, artists and arts collectives selected enable us to engage with central issues around water of our times.
