Modernity's End: Half the Sky, 2016 by John Young

Modernity's End: Half the Sky, 2016

A narrative-based exhibition on the remarkable histories of two Australians in China between 1920-1960. The historical memories of Alice Lim Kee and Daisy Kwok, who rode the sweep of modernity and its abrupt end, are brought together through painting, projection, photography and embroidery. This is the third exhibition that Young has mounted based on the history of the Chinese diaspora in Australia since the 1800s. This exhibition also includes invited artists Cyrus Tang, Pei Pei He and Theodore Wohng.
