There are many 'Souths' on our planet - the geographical, a state of mind, a way of being, a sense of difference. Located in Sydney's South, Hazelhurst is a fitting venue to explore this concept through the work of fourteen leading contemporary artists. These Australian, Mexican, and South African artists all push the boundaries of contemporary practice yet create accessible and engaging works relevant to audiences of all ages.
