This exhibition features new works by 38 artists, predominantly from Sydney’s Northern Beaches and members of the Manly Art Gallery & Museum Society. This year, artists have taken inspiration from a single theme, ‘home affairs’.
… home, homeland, homeless, home affairs, homing, home-grown, home owner, home-made, homewards …
Artists explore the concept of home as; a place, an idea, a possibility, a refuge, a presence, a contested space, somewhere to escape to or from, a memory. The exhibition showcases works from the wide range of artistic practice, including installation, photomedia, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, wood and ceramics.
The exhibition supports and connects this region’s contemporary artists with MAG&M, providing a valuable opportunity to show their work, to challenge their art practice, and to connect with other artists. Thank you to all artists for their enthusiasm and level of engagement with this exhibition project. The exhibition is curated by Katherine Roberts, Senior Curator, Manly Art Gallery & Museum.
