About the exhibition:
Between the Moon and the Stars considers the common impulse to find meaning in the night sky. Bringing together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal works with items from MAGNT’s natural science collections, the exhibition provides a cross-disciplinary perspective that examines understandings of the effects of the moon and stars on animal and human behaviour.
