We're Closer Than You Think: Northern Rivers Artists

Part of ArtState 2017, We’re Closer Than You Think brings together artwork by several artists based in the Northern Rivers. The exhibition questions the notion of regionality and the perception that artists working outside of metropolitan areas are hindered by location.
 
In various stages of their career and working across a range of disciplines, each artist in the exhibition was chosen for inadvertently refuting the relationship between location and success, population and production, and that the quality of their practice is determined by these imaginary borders.

Be quick! We’re Closer Than You Think will be open until Friday 8 December.
 
Co-curated by Natalie Bull and Zoe Robinson-Kennedy.
