Systems is an art exhibition that celebrates the diverse and curious biological systems of Australia’s living world.
Coinciding with the Australasian Systematic Botany Society 2018 conference, Mindthe Gap, this exhibition showcases South East Queensland-based artists who take inspiration from living systems, revealing links between art, science and nature.
