Sifting Time…

2 Apr – 20 May, 2012

Bringing together contemporary art from Australia and China.

Come and experience contemporary artistic interpretations which bridge China and Australia. The exhibition features the work of prominent artists Liu Zhuoquan, Huang Xu, Guan Wei, Anne Graham, Tony Scott and Geoff Hogg.

Through painting, photography and installation each practitioner plays with ideas of cultural transformation and tradition. Through their diverse artistic practices, they reflect on ways that culture is either preserved or discarded, remodelled in contemporary guise or forgotten with the passing of time.

Sifting Time… is an exhibition of contemporary art curated by Damian Smith and is part of the ‘Art in Chinatown’ program of exhibitions developed in partnership with RMIT University.

Curator’s Floor talk: Wednesday 11 April 1:00-2:00pm
