Fluid Borders 2019 (4/07/2019 – 27/07/2019)


Please join us to celebrate the opening of Fluid Borders 2019, an annual and inclusive platform for the collision of experimental arts and cultures.


This year participants respond to the notion of time, exploring experiences of growth and adaptation. Although the passage and consumption of time is consistent and unavoidable, this show offers an inexhaustible and infinitely practical space in which artists explore their own concepts of understandings of the temporal, posing the questions:

What can time achieve untethered from the laws of physics? And what happens when we materialize duration and progression as activity?

This experimental exhibition and events-series functions as a conduit for discourse, documentation and interaction, resulting in a series of events which question our perception and understanding of time from different perspectives and channels.


The exhibition will involve the work of:
Marcus Jackson, Mairi Gunn, Emily O’Hara, Peace Myth, Eva Jiang, DALI, RES, Yu, Nicole Hong, Rozana Lee.

It is accompanied by a series of events:
