What will we leave behind?
Older artists have created platforms for younger artists to experiment, expand and flourish. They have made space for art, opened up possibilities and left a legacy.
Young people also face a future impacted by the legacy left by older generations who have consumed finite resources with little thought for the future.
Although older generations have benefited from free access to resources, education and cheap housing, they have also fought for social change enabling the freedoms that young people benefit from now.
Artists will respond to these tensions and offer a space for dialogue between the generations. This exhibition will interrogate the question ‘What is a legacy?’; the legacy we leave, and the legacy we share.
Presented during Victorian Seniors Week.
