Exhibition details

The exhibition considers the work of Ian Fairweather and his relationship with Asia, investigating the artist's unique positioning in Australian art history and his commitment to cross-cultural engagement. Using Fairweather as a springboard Aaron Seeto will explore the current re-positioning being undertaken by contemporary Australian/Asian artists as they reflect upon and engage with the rich cultural environment to our north.

ORIENTing is an exhibition in two parts, each exploring a different aspect of artistic engagement with Asia.

More information about the exhibition, artists, artwork and the catalogue is available online via this website.
