My Australia

July 1st, 2011 to August 7th, 2011

Curated by Shiau-Peng Chen; Meng-Shu You

The exhibition My Australia is co-curated by Shiau-Peng Chen and Meng-shu You. The exhibition includes eleven Australian contemporary artists whose works point to issues unique to Australian culture and society. The artists present their observations and perspectives on the Australian cultural experience through their respective artistic genres including painting, photography, installation and video. The eleven artists in the exhibition come from diverse  backgrounds: they include native Australian artists, Australian artists living overseas, Indonesian-Australian artist and Chinese-Australian artists. Through their artistic creations, these artists address their subjective relationships to the Australian cultural experience; their social issues of concern; their own identities; and more importantly, their specific definitions of “My Australia”.
