Artereal Gallery Artist, Owen Leong, has artwork included in the touring exhibition MADE IN CHINA, AUSTRALIA, a two-year touring exhibition which is now on show at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery (QVMAG) in Launceston until 17 May 2015.

QVMAG marks the last stop of the two-year touring exhibition, which has traveled to 10 different venues across Australia.

Curated by Greg Leong, the exhibition questions how the work of Chinese Australian artists is affected by the particular Chinese Australian heritage and experiences they have had. Some of the artists in the exhibition were born here, others travelled here in the past and some are recent arrivals. The curator is interested in the subtle differences that arise in the artists’ work due to their particular relationship with the two cultures.

Made In China, Australia investigates contemporary art practices across a range of mediums and disciplines, genders and generations.
