LUMA | La Trobe University Museum of Art will present the exhibition  
Me Here Now: Identity and Place in Contemporary Australian Art at  
Ateneo Art Gallery, Manila. The exhibition showcases works by  
Australian artists who are engaged, as the title suggests, with the  
notions of identity and landscape in contemporary Australia. It will  
focus on notions of Australianness, youth culture, migrant identities,  
aboriginal identity and landscape as place. The exhibition will  
include the works of prominent Australian artists such as Donna Bailey  
(photographs), Scott Redford (video), Michel Riley (photographs) Sean  
Gladwell (video) and David Rosetzky (video) amongst others. Presenting  
multiple works by each artist with a focus on new media the exhibition  
will give a Filipino audience an insight into the current practices  
and trends in Australian photography, video and installation.
