About this event

Rules of Summer features a set of original paintings from Shaun Tan made for the picture book of the same title. The exhibition follows the friendship of two young boys as they're challenged by many difficult and irrational situations, each a metaphor for familiar childhood experiences. The story is a list of mysterious rules, 'Never step on a snail' or 'Never leave a red sock on the clothesline'. As each rule is broken -- not always by accident -- surprising consequences ensue and audiences are invited to decide for themselves what's really happening, and why.

An ART ON THE MOVE touring exhibition.
