| ALL OF US |
Curated by Jessica Clark

Artists: Liam Benson + Adorned, Karen Casey, Jody Haines, Teresa Hsieh, Mitch Mahoney + Molly Mahoney with Maree Clarke, and 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.
