This is the first institutional solo exhibition of Eugenia Lim’s work, a compelling and witty examination of contemporary Australia. The Ambassador unearths multiple dimensions of the Asian-Australian narrative – drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing, and the role of architecture in shaping society – exploring how national identities and stereotypes cut, divide and bond our globalised world.
Curated by Mikala Tai, Director, The Ambassador is a 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Museums & Galleries of NSW touring exhibition. This project is assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program
