Curated by Ashley Yihsin Chang

Personal objects have been the catalyst for conversation between 19 local artists and members of the Perth Taiwanese community who have immigrated to Western Australia. The artists have translated and contextualized these dialogues, creating new works to help navigate the increasingly complex issues embedded in the hybrid cultural society in which we live. 

Participating artists:
Nalda Searles, Olga Cironis, Janine McAullay Bott, Sarah Toohey, Perdita Philips, Eva Fernandez, Carmela Corvaia, Vanessa Wallace, Elizabeth Marruffo, Mel Dare, Claire Bushby, Louise Monte, Denise Brown, Beverly Iles, Sharon Callow, Elizabeth Devlin, Shona McGregor, Emily Ten Raa, and Candy Chiao-Yun Lee.
