Apocalypse / Revelation: Re Looking, an exhibition by prominent Australian artist Irene Barberis, is on show until June 15.

"I've been working with the Apocalypse and images from the Apocalypse for 35 years in all different ways, as a female and with a different type of sensibility to the normal representations of the Apocalypse," Dr Barberis said.

"I've been focusing on the ideas of a new beginning, regeneration, light, futuristic architecture, science in terms of light.

"I open up a platform for dialogue - a platform which is not often opened up, especially with the Bible."

Dr Barberis is a painter and interdisciplinary artist.

She has curated major international and national exhibitions and co-directs gallery Langford120 with colleague and artist Dr Wilma Tabacco.

Dr Barberis is also the Founder and Director of Metasenta and the Global Centre for Drawing.

"I'm a senior lecturer at RMIT and I'm involved in some large research projects," she said.

"I've been working here, in Melbourne, and internationally for many years."

Meanwhile, the VAC boasts a jam-packed 2014 exhibition program.
