Only Connect

11 February – 15 March
Adelaide Central Gallery

Max Callaghan, Daniel Connell, Jake Holmes & Himanshu Vyas, and Mandy Ridley

This exhibition draws into focus a range of differing strategies utilised by artists working cross-culturally. While recent years have seen an improvement in the awareness of cultural exploitation and appropriation across the creative arts, this understanding is not universally shared and is a growing point of contention. Rather than retreat from this fraught position, the artists in this exhibition have explored potentially deeper and more sensitive means of engagement and cross-cultural exchange. Only Connect seeks to contribute to a vital conversation, framed around a selection of recent work from Australian and Indian artists.

Featuring a range of media, including video, drawing and painting, Only Connect is a rich and varied exhibition. Featuring work by Max Callaghan, Daniel Connell, Jake Holmes & Himanshu Vyas, and Mandy Ridley. Mandy Ridley is represented by Onespace Gallery (Brisbane).
