Event Details


This exhibition presents a series of Arabic calligraphy artworks (inspired by ancient Islamic art) by Halima Bhatti. Asrar-e-Khudi is a Persian phrase that means “The Secret of the Self”. The artist relates her journey to this phrase, as it signifies the idea that embracing the systems of the universe originates in the self. This idea was inspired by the 19th-century Persian poet, Allamah Iqbal, whose works mainly revolve around the spiritual and philosophical nature of people and how the recognition of self creates emotional bonds with eternity, empowering the heart, body and soul of the individual as well as society as a whole.



Join us on the final day of our current exhibitions for a floor talk with artists Halima Bhatti, Judy Jackson and Joshua Andree.

12pm, Saturday 5 August
Free event, all welcome

Halima Bhatti is a calligraphy artist, her works are deeply poetic and are steeped in meditational practices, drawing from Arabic and Urdu quotations, verses from Holy Quran, and Sufi poems.

Judy Jackson has been interpreting the world around her through art for much of her life. Fascinated by both the natural and built environment, Jackson enjoys creating her own versions of history through narratives of promise, joy and bustling reflection.

Joshua Andree investigates through oil painting the landscape of the Island State of Tasmania, particularly looking at the atmospheric relationships between land, sky and sea.
