A Willoughby City Council curated group exhibition, Inner Edge Drifting explores the cultural space experienced by people living in Western cultures (and specifically Australia) who have Asian roots.
This third cultural space (often referred to within the experiences of Third Culture Kid) can be experienced by people whose upbringing is culturally different from their parents or where their upbringing has traversed across different geographic locations.
Hyun-Hee Lee is one of the artists from Inner Edge Drifting and she will provide insight into the exhibition theme and the various perspectives offered by each artist. The exhibition Curator, Cassandra Hard Lawrie, will also be in attendance and visitors will have the opportunity to ask Hyun-Hee and Cassandra questions about the exhibition.
