10 regional shows to see this summer
From an intriguing exhibition on baroque masters to a show ostensibly all about dogs, here’s our curated list of regional offerings to see throughout the country this summer.

Horror is where the marginalised can see themselves—as a horror-themed exhibition at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art reveals.
Unboxing the cultural impact of sneakers
Sneakers are a cultural phenomenon made up of paradoxes. Some see them as an accessible and inclusive force in fashion that serve as an outlet of self-expression for many; yet to others they are a symbol of out-of-control consumerism. Two Queensland exhibitions are embracing these dualities, though from contrasting angles: Sneakers Unboxed: Studio to Street at HOTA on the Gold Coast, and Torsion at Brisbane’s Metro Arts.
Louise Bourgeois and an account of life
This summer the Art Gallery of New South Wales is showing the largest Louise Bourgeois survey ever exhibited in Australia. We asked five Australian artists influenced by Bourgeois to each write about one artwork in the exhibition.

Leanne Xiu Williams captures the beauty of raw ingredients
In a collaboration with Two Good Co, Leanne Xiu Williams’s sumptuous still life paintings act as chapter openers and end papers for their new cookbook Changing the Course. The paintings themselves are now on display at Saint Cloche for an exhibition of the same name.
