reconnaissance Other events...
We live in a rapidly changing world. War and global warming mean that thousands of people worldwide are constantly crossing state boundaries or becoming stateless. Some have been stateless for generations. Australians are used to seeing the victims of the latest war or environmental tragedy on their television screens. We know all about refugees arriving on boats. But there are other situations in the world we are much less aware of. The works in this show explore what happens beyond official accounts.

This exhibition presents the work of five Australian artists whose oeuvre has taken them beyond our domestic boundaries and local concerns. These works constitute a ‘reconnaissance’, a survey of other places and events. They are observations and fact finding of events beyond the boundaries, hidden from news cameras. The works tease out the meanings of the symbols of state power and offer a critique of the institutions of state power across the world stage.
