Join artist Pamela Leung on a floor talk to discuss the Assembly exhibition.

An ‘assembly’ can be a temporary collective with a shared sense of purpose, or a creative, resilient (and sometimes precarious) construction. Assembly brings together eight Hong Kong-born artists from different generations of the diaspora. Amid the current wave of migration, this exhibition explores the act of ‘making sense’ of layers and fragments, of memories and stories, told or untold. Assembly embraces the resonance and dissonance between the diverse creative practices of these artists, questioning readymade notions of diasporic identity.

About the artist

Pamela Leung is a Hong Kong-born artist who moved to Sydney in 1976. Working with installation, video, performance, sculpture and painting, Leung often draws on her personal experience of migration to create a space in which to share ideas of identity and displacement. Since completing her MFA at the National Art School, Sydney, in 2016, Leung has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally and was awarded the Emerging Artist Award at the 65th Blake Prize in 2018.
