Touring Exhibitions

Umbrella has curated, coordinated, exhibited and delivered a number of touring exhibitions across Australia and internationally. We support our artist members to reach a wider audience and to showcase the strength of high-quality artworks created in North Queensland. 

Our major exhibition Legacy: Reflections on Mabo is currently touring, despite some detours and postponements due to COVID-19. Umbrella also presents bespoke exhibitions in Townsville with our community partners at The Grand Hotel, Hoi Polloi Cafe, Townsville Bulletin and Donna Bionda restaurant. 

Listed are some of our exhibitions currently available for tour. If you are interested in hosting one of these exhibitions or any other Umbrella exhibition at your venue, please contact us.
