Featuring work by Katherine Batchelor, Janette Cervin, Graham Downs, Linda Gair, Robyn Gibson, Bev Goodwin, Weilun Ha, Andrea Halley, Joanna Lewton, Sue Lorimer, Sally Lush, Prue MacDougall, Sean McDonnell, Nyle Major, Biljana Popovic, Mandy Thomsett Taylor and Ruby Watson these artists explore the social, historical, cultural, emotional, sensory and symbolic aspects of what we consume.
