Colonial constructs of Australian identity have politically and culturally distanced Australia from its geographical neighbours. Despite this, and in the face of the immigration restriction act, the Asian communities have had a long and significant history of contributing to Australia.

HYPHENATED presents the work of a number of contemporary Asian-Australian artists living locally in Victoria, offering varying perspectives of issues, from the personal to the global, through a hyphenated lens.

Exhibiting artists include RUSHDI ANWARSOFI BASSEGHI AND EHSAN KHOSHNAMI, ANDY BUTLER, RHETT D’COSTATAMMY WONG HULBERTNIKKI LAMEUGENIA LIMHOANG TRAN NGUYENSLIPPAGE and VIPOO SRIVILASA.

Presented by The SUBSTATION.
