Hurstville Museum ;Gallery set to host Point of Contact exhibition

Posted 31 August 2016 by (Hurstville News)

Local art lovers are invited to Georges River Councils Hurstville Museum & Gallery’s upcoming art exhibition, Point of Contact by Fangmin (Jack) Wu.

The exhibition is inspired by everyday points of contact in the urban landscape, and how they can be the start of a new journey or a fork in in the road.

Fangmin explores the important role the train station, the intersection and the cul-de-sac play in people’s daily lives.

The exhibition captures the movement and vibrancy of these places with bold and contrasting colours, including some European favourite places from the artist’s travels.

Fangmin’s artworks have been included in A Great Biographic Dictionary of Contemporary Chinese Artists as well as numerous art prize finalist shows, including the Blake Prize and St George Art Awards.
