The exhibition questions how the work of Chinese Australian artists is affected by the particular Chinese Australian heritage and experiences they have had. Some of the artists in the exhibition were born in Australia, others travelled to Australia in the past and some are recent arrivals. The curator is interested in the subtle differences that arise in the artists’ work due to their particular relationship with the two cultures.
