On Witnessing is an exhibition of photographs that speak to the broad yet familiar presentations of youth cultures across various cities. Atong Atem showcases a diversity of personal relationships and people she's observed from Naarm, Melbourne, Cadi, Sydney, Suva, Fiji and parts of Turtle Island. On Witnessing is an ode to the importance of documenting and archiving the communities and spaces that we inhabit.
This event is taking place on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri Peoples of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. Indigenous sovereignty has never been ceded in so-called Australia.
The Artist’s Guild Gallery is fully wheelchair accessible. It’s also in the free tram zone!
