Closing the Distance
Owen Leong, Eugenia Lim, Jason Phu, Cyrus Tang and Louise Zhang

Owen Leong, Eugenia Lim, Jason Phu, Cyrus Tang and Louise Zhang have been invited to exhibit work as part of Closing the Distance.

Curated by Sophia Cai, the exhibition is a group show at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, which brings together contemporary Chinese and Australian-Chinese artists to explore issues of migration, place and the contemporary diaspora experience.

The exhibition will focus on artists whose works make connections to shared Chinese cultural heritage, lineage, and lived experience. Central to this exhibition is the exploration of contemporary migration and the movement of people, culture and history across local and global boundaries. Closing the Distance highlights how cultural differences are valuable in providing diverse viewpoints, but also how shared personal experiences and narratives can provide a means to bridge these differences.

The artists featured are from across the world and include Kevin Chin, Pei Pei He, Pia Johnson, Lindy Lee, Owen Leong, Eugenia Lim, Chun-yu Liu, Jason Phu, Cyrus Tang, Guan Wei, Shen Wei and Louise Zhang.

Exhibition runs until 30 April 2017 at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
