When I grow up I want to live in a grey area

An exhibition by MFA Fine Art students Joana Faria and Emily Simpson

When I grow up I want to live in a grey area

Exhibition private view:
Thursday 19 October, 7 pm – 9 pm

This exhibition examines generational anxieties and the conflict between personal and political narratives – how we are perceived, and how we wish to be perceived. Both artists respond ethnographically, as they move from one grey area to another.
