Examining imagery alluding to the built environment, HABITAT: Ways of living features works by artists from Canberra and around Australia.
This exhibition reveals ways of living in a variety of environments - from high-rise, high-end apartments, to prosaic suburban subdivisions and locations where inhabitants have endured the collapse of their communities. These contemporary artists reveal how the built environment responds to, and is influenced by circumstance. The exhibition tells individual stories of the resilience and imagination of the human spirit.
The featured artists in HABITAT: Ways of living include: Alex Asch, Burchill/McCamley, Miriam Charlie, Sean Davey, David Flanagan, Michal Glikson, Tina Havelock Stevens, Katie Hayne, Mikhaila Jurkiewicz, Waratah Lahy, Hardy Lohse, Catherine O’Donnell, David Paterson, Alan Patterson, Patrice Riboust, Natalie Rosin, Khaled Sabsabi, James Tylor (Possum).
Supported by the Gordon Darling Foundation.
