Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to follow the clues to step through time.

From an Egyptian hieroglyph to digital contemporary artworks, Time Catcher takes visitors on a journey from ancient times to the modern day. Exploring how art has been used to interpret key moments in time, Time Catcher showcases works as diverse as an ancient Chinese Tomb Ware dog and Victoria’s Centenary clock in the shape of a birthday cake. Incorporating a variety of hands on and multimedia experiences, children and their families can trace time through art and see firsthand how the creation of artworks has informed our understanding of the past, present and future.

Parent/carer supervision required. Groups of ten or more by appointment.
