The national tour of Eugenia Lim: the Ambassador comes to regional South Australia.
This 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Museums & Galleries of NSW (M&G NSW) initiated touring project presents Lim’s most recent body of work, The Ambassador series. In this three-part project, Lim takes on a Mao-like persona who sits halfway between truth and fantasy – dressed in gold lamé. Throughout each of her works, the Ambassador takes on new roles in uncovering the Australian-Asian narrative – drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing and the role of architecture in shaping society.
