What's On

As part of PHOTO 2020 International Festival of Photography, award-winning artist Atong Atem has created a new series of large-scale photographic works for the Immigration Museum.

In these bold, dynamic portraits, seemingly surreal worlds are created and explored by the subjects, filling the ground floor with vibrant colour and life. Exploring mythology and fantasy, belonging and truth, Atong Atem continues her exploration of identity, and the ways in which we construct images and stories to understand ourselves and our surroundings.
