Where do we go from here? Proposes that we think critically about the role of both art and exhibition making in the production of narratives about our past, present and future.
Sun Xun: Mythological Time. In his highly imaginative video installation, Sun takes viewers on a journey through his hometown of Fuxin in Northern China, a coal-mining centre.
Stories that animate us. Developed formally and thematically in conversation with Sun Xun’s: Mythological Time, this exhibition draws from a diverse range of oral histories, narratives, knowledge systems and cosmologies.
Pictures and Promises focuses on lens-based works that employ the structures, conventions and formal qualities used in mass media, fashion and advertising. Part of Capture Photography Festival.
