THE AMBASSADOR by Eugenia Lim
Please join us for opening night, with a live performance of The People’s Currency by Lim, on Friday 17 January, 6pm.
The Ambassador brings together Australian artist Eugenia Lim’s most recent body of work. In this three-part project, Lim transforms herself into the Ambassador, a Mao-like persona who sits halfway between truth and fantasy. She takes on new roles in uncovering the Australian-Asian narrative, drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing and the role of architecture in shaping society.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
