Grace’s summer art picks

Mon 4 December

Art markets, children’s workshops and horror-fuelled group shows—check out summer art picks from Grace Herbert, one of our senior curators.

Whether she’s helping wrangle bus-sized surrealism or instal Haitian sculpture, Grace Herbert knows how to pick the good spot. We asked for a quick guide to Melbourne shows and exhibitions to keep us air-conditioned and enthralled through the long days of summer.
