107 Presents: Blak Mirror
Blak Mirror is an exhibition featuring emerging, early career, regional, local and interstate multidisciplinary artists reflecting their view of Australian society through a black lens. The artists' works gaze into the eyes of non-Aboriginal people and reflect the current realities of being Aboriginal today, whilst holding a mirror up to Australian society.
Featuring: Dean Cross, Nicole Monks, Chico Monks, Brad Harkin, Amala Groom, Teena McCarthy, Billy Cooley, Lulu Cooley, Aleshia Lonsdale and Adam Hill aka Blak Douglas.
Blak Mirror is curated by Jason Wing, a Sydney-based artist who strongly identifies with his Chinese and Aboriginal heritage. Wing began as a street artist and has since expanded his practice to incorporate photomedia, installation and painting. Influenced by his bi-cultural upbringing, Wing explores the ongoing challenges that impact his wider community. Calling into question our understanding of history and of our current socio-political reality, Wing repurposes everyday objects and imagery, creating works that are both visually confronting and deceptively simple.
Opening Wednesday 18th January | 6–8pm.
Exhibition continues until Sunday 29th January.
Gallery open Tuesday–Saturday 11am–7pm | Sunday 11am–6pm.
