Domestic Seen

Exhibition Website

Oct 20 2016 - Mar 26 2017

Domestic Seen focuses upon seven artists who employ interiors, objects and related “domestic” scenes to convey perceptions regarding varied experiences, immigration, celebrity, wealth etc. The seemingly mundane is imbued with critical content that resonates both locally and nationally. Featuring paintings, photographs, video, drawings and sculptural works, the exhibition highlights a diverse range of people, places and objects in which viewers may recognize aspects of their own lives or their community.
