A NETS Victoria and Asialink Arts touring exhibitions featuring work by Brook Andrew, Mikala Dwyer and Justene Williams, Tony Garifalakis, Claire Lambe, Clare Milledge.

Erewhon is the (almost) return of Neverwhere, an exhibition that travelled to Istanbul last year, commissioned by Asialink as part of the Australia Year in Turkey. Neverwhere presented the work of eight contemporary Australian artists that disturbed distinctions between our real and imagined selves, and between the authentic and the proposed. Narratives were informed by external – and often mysterious – forces, both seen and unseen; the exhibition shifted registers between sincerity and satire although its propensity was to shadowy psychological turns.
