THE AMBASSADOR

Eugenia Lim

18 Jan - 23 Feb
Main Gallery

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.

Please join us for opening night, with a live performance of The People’s Currency by Lim, on Friday 17 January, 6pm.

The City of Mount Gambier acknowledges the Boandik Peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the land and water our city sits upon today.

We respect and recognise the deep feelings of attachment and the spiritual relationship our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have with the land and water.
