Rolled Up/Rolled Out is focussed on how the production of art in global cities is responding to, contributing to and influenced by the intensification and expansion of cultural flows in globalisation.
The exhibition is a snapshot of the diverse art expressivities that emerge through the common experience of contemporary urban space. It is both an interface to a complex situation and a cultural lens through which to view social, political and economic forces. Art becomes a critical cultural conduit for exposing the transformation of meanings and experience in contemporary globalisation.
