12 June – 20 July
Opening Tuesday 12 June 6-8pm

Two artists consider the after-hours shadows and margins of domestic and urban spaces as uncanny, unknowable and ambiguous.

Bringing together some of the oldest and newest forms of photography and using highly subjective perspectives and particular individual aesthetics, they express loss, absence, transience, anxiety and uncertainty via prints, video, installation and zine.

Events: Melissa Howe in “Variable Truths”

PSM friend Melissa Howe will be exhibiting as part of the group show, “Variable Truth”.

Australia has experienced drastic shifts in its cultural environment through an increased awareness of its geography, cultural diversity, social history, globalisation and the impact of emerging economic powerbases. Variable Truth is a group exhibition of artists who look to the Asia-Pacific region for cross-cultural fertilisation and an understanding of their own historical trajectories. By doing so, they reveal alternate perspectives and histories, expanding aesthetic and conceptual understandings of Australia’s role in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Variable Truth
4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art
181-187 Hay Street, Haymarket (between Pitt and George St)
Opening: Thursday May 24, 6-8pm
