A major new collaborative exhibition featuring JOHN YOUNG is opening at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art next Thursday 28 June, 6-8pm. 

For The Burrangong Affray 4A commissioned Chinese-Australian artists John Young and Jason Phu to trace the events and repercussions of the period between November 1860 and September 1881, where the goldfields of Burrangong (NSW) became the site of Australia's largest racially motivated riot. The works interweave accounts of history to create contemporary mediations that reflect identity, economics, race and otherness in Australia today.

The Burrangong Affray is the second iteration of a two-part exhibition project. The first was realised in Young in April 2018. The exhibition runs from 29 June until 14 August 2018.
