20 October – 3 December 2023
OPENING NIGHT, FRIDAY 20 OCTOBER 5:30PM
In this solo exhibition, Julie Gough employs film, installation, and archives to unearth submerged narratives, blending the building’s colonial past with local histories. Drawing inspiration from multiple Newcastle visits and residencies, she seamlessly melds past and present, crafting narratives of memory and place. This synthesis of art and research offers a deep dive into history, in a continuation of her ongoing work dealing with individual, national and First Nations identity.
