Beg Borrow Steal 2015

Beg Borrow Steal

10 April 2015 - 24 May 2019


Artist(s): Lorraine Austin, Gabrielle Baker, Danielle Freakley, Rob McHaffie, Mina Young. Co-curated by Gabrielle Baker.


This exhibition explores the many different ways in which people are stimulated by other cultures. The works display a fascination with other cultures and draw on the other worldly experience of travel.

The artists in Beg Borrow Steal express the idea that the ‘tourist gaze’ is no longer a singular voyeuristic act but instead, challenges our way of looking. They explore the impact of what is borrowed and what is shared in the global environment to query visual boundaries and our relationship between personal experience and cultural meanings.
