Chinese Whispers and Other Stories
Bringing together four emerging female artists of Chinese descent, this exhibition seeks to reveal the complex and shifting nature of cultural difference, identity and migrant stories in ‘multicultural’ Australia. Featuring interstate photo-based artists Pia Johnson, Tammy Law, Janelle Low and Siying Zhou.

The photographic media works negotiate notions of identity, racial discrimination and stereotyping, as well as reimagine the spaces we live in, what makes cultural differences and how it contributes to the narrative of a wider Australian identity. This exhibition is supported by a PhotoAccess 2017 Artist Support Package.

Exhibition to be opened by Professor Jacqueline Lo, Associate Dean (International), Australian National University College of Arts and Social Sciences.
