A series of renowned historic etchings counterbalance new artworks that depict or disrupt 'witch iconography' and impressions of witchcraft. Second Sight gives precedence to inexplicable occurrences, expressions of difference, the supernatural, sexual power, and the potency of the natural world in ways that are bodily and visceral yet also incorporeal.

The exhibition Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power has been formed through a partnership between UQ Art Museum and UQ's Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH). We are grateful for the valuable intellectual contributions that Dr Charlotte-Rose Millar, Dr Daniel Midena and Associate Professor Anna Johnston have made to this exhibition. We are also grateful to curators Samantha Littley, Michele Helmrich and Jessica O'Farrell for their research and leadership throughout the project.
