Ian Strange : ISLAND
Perth-raised, New York-based artist Ian Strange returns home for ISLAND, featuring large-scale photographs and a site-specific installation. The exhibition depicts the foreclosed homes in Ohio’s Rust Belt region as Strange investigates the suburban home, exploring its dual nature as a place of sovereignty and simultaneous entrapment.
I WAS HERE

Artists include Tom Buckland (ACT), Wanda Gillespie (NZ), Kate McMillan (UK), Yhonnie Scarce (VIC), Alex Seton (NSW), Amy Spiers (VIC) and Robyn Stacey (NSW).
