Family: Visions of a Shared Humanity at Art Gallery of NSW
Lower level 2, Art Gallery Road, The Domain, Sydney
Bringing together the work of nine internationally renowned artists, this free new video exhibition looks at human connection at a moment of division.

“How do we see each other?” This question lies at the heart of the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ new exhibition, Family: Visions of a Shared Humanity.

Created in partnership with Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), USA, and guest curated by Franklin Sirmans, director of PAMM, the exhibition is made up of nine video works by leading American, British and Canadian artists: John Akomfrah, Garrett Bradley, Stan Douglas, Theaster Gates, Arthur Jafa, Kahlil Joseph, Isaac Julien, Steve McQueen, and Carrie Mae Weems. Many of these works have never been seen in Australia before.

At a moment in history marked by division, uncertainty and isolation, Family is a moving and timely exhibition that aims to create understanding through the power of art and open conversation about the deeper meaning of the term ‘family’. Exploring history, migration, culture, and representation, Family hopes to open up vital conversations about who we are and how we relate to one another. More details.
