'Infinite Conversations: Asian-Australian artistic exchange', at the National Gallery of Australia, features iconic works by LYNDELL BROWN & CHARLES GREEN, ROSE FARRELL & GEORGE PARKIN (pictured), GUO JIAN, GUAN WEI, and JOHN YOUNG.
This exhibition considers the creative practice of artists from mainland China and Hong Kong, a number of whom settled in Australia following the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Using diverse modes of production, these artists confront and recount the challenges of making a new home with shifting degrees of grief, poetry and optimism. A second gallery examines the relationships between Asian and Australian artists, revealing a rich, sometimes disquieting dialogue as concepts of race and culture are provoked and explored.
The exhibition continues until 9 September.
