SYDNEY – At Sullivan + Strumpf Sydney’s latest exhibition, titled Future Past: tradition and transgression in contemporary art from Asia, the gallery brings together fourteen contemporary artists working across East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific to consider the ways in which current art practices in the region interface with limits of historically determined artistic and cultural boundaries, and how these collisions of past and present might inform one another to create the art of the future.
