Hatched: National Graduate Show 2020

Featuring the work of 24 recent visual arts graduates from every State and Territory with an exciting and diverse range of practices rigorously selected. The exhibition tells the story of the nation’s emerging arts practices while acting as an important platform for artistic careers. Informed by the artists’ lived experiences, many of the works share ideas around social constructs, individual identity and cultural heritage. Issues of racism, displacement and the concept of the cohesiveness of a multi-ethnic identity are examined. The role of fashion in shaping self-perception, how sound can affect our sense of place and how grand personal narratives can come unstuck are some of the concepts explored.
