A SALAMANCA ART CENTRE EXHIBITION, CURATOR: GREG LEONG // This exhibition questions how the work of Chinese Australian artists is affected by the particular Chinese Australian heritage and experiences they have had. The curator is interested in the subtle differences that arise in the artists' work due to their particular relationship with the two cultures. Made In China, Australia investigates contemporary art practices across a range of mediums and disciplines, genders and generations.
