Reflecting on our increasingly precarious notions of place and belonging, this exhibition examines ways in which contemporary artworks embody, transpose and reconfigure a sense of locality in a globalised world.

Through dislocated fragments and figures, re-materialised objects and textures, stains and other obscure impressions, artists in this exhibition – Hany Armanious, Boyle Family, Bonita Bub, Janet Burchill and Jennifer McCamley, Fiona Connor, Thomas Demand, Dale Harding, Igor and Svetlana Kopystiansky, Anna Kristensen and Jasper Jordan-Lang – map specific relationships of adjacency and imbalance, tracking the uneven conditions that assemble and define distances, to highlight the powerful dissonance between site and identity, place and authority.

Out of Place is curated by Oscar Capezio and runs until 13 June 2021.

This exhibition is generously supported by the ANU Visual Arts Endowment.
