Finding connection in the modern age, why straight women should probably be dating sharks, and the pitfalls of fraudulent sex positivity.

52 ARTISTS 52 ACTIONS surveys Artspace’s ambitious, year-long online project running from January 2018 – January 2019 highlighting artistic practice across Asia. The project commissioned 52 artists and collectives to stage actions in unique locations throughout the region and share them with global audiences online. The exhibition brings this rich collection into the Artspace galleries to address the social, cultural and political implications of working in the region and consider how art as action has the power to invoke change. Key to the project is an engagement with Asia and its diaspora as an endlessly evolving region with sub-cultures and subjectivities that defy traditional or rigid narratives. Opening night is free and kicks off at 6pm!
