The Art of Origin project began as series of visual art workshops that explored the intersection between participants’ home of origin and home in Australia and our sense of belonging, identity and community. Now an exhibition, Art of Origin showcases a selection of the individual and collaborative works made during these workshops and offers an insight into the artists’ lived experiences.

After two years of community workshops, in which hundreds of portraits have been completed, Arts Access Victoria is happy to announce that the MY PLACE exhibition will open soon!
Generously supported by Gandel Philanthropy, Arts Access Victoria has taken MY PLACE to 13 residencies across Victoria from Horsham to Wonthaggi. Hundreds of portraits have been produced, generating a map of Victorian people as they see themselves in their own location.
Due to the vast numbers of portraits produced we are unable to display all the works but have endeavoured to show as many as possible.
Please not that although the opening event will have an accessible toilet, the nearest accessible toilet for the duration of the exhibition Is at the DFO South Wharf shopping complex.
When: Opening at 11am on 17 July, running until 29 July 2015.
Venue: 100th Gallery
Location: 200 Normanby Road South Melbourne
