Pigment print, gift of the artist 2013, National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.

Infinite Conversations


Works from the Gallery’s collection that consider 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.

When:Until Sunday 8 July
Where:National Gallery of Australia
