Future Past: Tradition and Transgression in Contemporary Art from Asia brings together 15 contemporary artists working across East Asia, South East Asia and the Asia Pacific. Artists include; Gonkar Gyatso, FX Harsono, Irfan Hendrian, Latthapon Korkiatarkul, Krack Studio, Lindy Lee, Ramesh Mario Nithityendran, Dawn Ng, Eko Nugroho, Albert Yonathan Setyawan, Jeremy Sharma, Jakkai Siributr, Adeela Suleman and Yang Yongliang.
Each artist considers the ways in which current art practices in the region interface with and extend beyond the limits of historically determined artistic and cultural boundaries, where they transgress, and how these collisions of past and present might inform one another to create an art of the future.
Exhibition opens: 3–5pm Saturday 1 June 2019
