The latest exhibition at the Flinders University Museum of Art (FUMA) is The Guildhouse Collections Project: After the Fall – and all staff can register to attend a special guided tour of the works at 10am on Friday 2 September.
Flinders University Alumni and friends who have been invited to the special tour will benefit from having exhibition curator Alice Clanachan explain more about the exhibition and new works that the FUMA collection has inspired.
After the Fall takes its cue from the biblical Fall, represented in the FUMA collection by the print Adam and Eve Driven Out of Paradise (1827) by British artist John Martin (1789-1854). Martin’s dramatic mezzotint illustrates a scene from John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost where Adam and Eve are banished by God from the Garden of Eden for their transgressions, corrupting humanity and bringing sin to the world.
The exhibition, which is free, will continue at FUMA until 16 September.
