Join us for a tour by Senior Curator Peta Rake, who will take you through UQ Art Museum’s exhibition Oceanic Thinking (19 July–17 December 2022) . This is the latest exhibition of the multi-year program Blue Assembly, exploring our relationship with the ocean by gathering “blue” approaches to research.

As liquid, vast, biodiverse and non-binary spaces, oceans invite us to explore the legacies of the past while speculating together on our collective future.


Peta Rake is Senior Curator at UQ Art Museum. Prior to this, she held various roles at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, including Acting Director of Creative Residencies, Visual + Digital Art Department and full-time Curator of Walter Phillips Gallery/Banff International Curatorial Institute (BICI). Independently, she has curated exhibitions at ISCP (New York), Oakland Museum of California (Oakland), CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art (San Francisco), Luggage Store Gallery (San Francisco), and the Esker Foundation (Calgary).
