Room 14, Level 7, 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne, VIC, 3000
Liam Benson + Adorned, Jodie Haynes, Karen Casey, Teresa Hsieh, Mitch and Molly Mahoney, Justine Youssef.
In a world seemingly felt through the digitalisation of relationships, and experienced through the overwhelming access to data, All of us is a timely reminder of the importance to connect; with people, with a vast range or perceptions, ideas and knowledge.
The exhibition presents a contemporary framework by which to explore the importance of collaboration and the connections between artists, their practice, and the audiences they reach – providing an exploratory space to reflect on what it means to be a greater we.
In this context, and in acknowledgement of the land that binds all of us, the exhibition celebrates the creative rewards of collective activity as a cultural strategy to encourage new connections, reveal those that might otherwise remain latent, and to address the global on a local level.
