A major new arts undertaking, the TWT Creative Precinct is an exciting, vibrant new initiative which involves the conversion of a number of commercial buildings on Atchison Street into art galleries, creative retail and space for artists. This opportunity has been made possible through our new relationship with Auswin TWT Developments.

‘PANORAMA’ — Chris Yee

We’re very excited to announce the 2nd solo exhibition by Chris Yee — ‘BETWEEN’.

With PANORAMA, Chris Yee explores power through size and scale – more directly the representation of sport teams, gangs, ancient armies and governments throughout time. 

Through a series of large scale artworks he finally mends the missing links between the social youth of Chinatown, the suburbs of Ryde and the Roman empire.
