This exhibition shows how contemporary artists are exploring social contact with their subjects and audiences. Many are interested in historical events, but others look at the ways we perceive the world today and our place within it. Addressing themes including human rights, sustainability and cultural exchange, the works reflect on the ways that individuals shape, and are shaped by, their social networks.
The exhibition features work by Destiny Deacon and Virginia Fraser (Australia), Pat Hoffie (Australia), Sutee Kunavichayanont (Thailand), Jompet Kuswidananto (Indonesia), James Newitt (Australia), Raquel Ormella (Australia), Tsuyoshi Ozawa (Japan), Patricia Piccinini (Australia), Stuart Ringholt (Australia), Darren Siwes (Australia), Michel Tuffery (New Zealand), You Are Here (Australia) and Zhang Huan (China).
