Congratulations to CYRUS TANG, a finalist in this year's Banyule Award for Works on Paper.

The 2019 Banyule Award called on artists to submit artworks that address current social, cultural, political or environmental issues. In Tang's selected work, the artist has taken a 1936 encyclopaedia and burned and arranged its contents. In this transformation of material, she suggests that the knowledge of the past has disappeared and we have not learnt from history.

The finalist exhibition will run from 28 August at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe.
