Floor talk with Juliana Engberg


Tempest is a major temporary art exhibition at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) conceived and developed by internationally acclaimed curator Juliana Engberg.

In creating the exhibition Juliana Engberg was inspired by William Shakespeare’s other-wordly romance The Tempest, written in 1611.

Set on a remote island, The Tempest tells the story of the sorcerer Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, who plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and manipulation. Prospero conjures up a storm to lure his enemies to the island, where – with the help of the fierce sprite Ariel – his machinations play out.

Hear more about the inspiration for the exhibition at two special floor talks with Juliana Engberg.
