The Ateneo Art Gallery (AAG) and the La Trobe University Museum of Art  
(LUMA) present Me Here Now: Identity and Place in Contemporary  
Australian Art, to be launched on Wednesday, 22 June 2011 at the  
Ateneo Art Gallery, Rizal Library Special Collections Building, Ateneo  
de Manila University.  As part of the AAG?s ArtSpeak program,  
exhibition curator and LUMA Artistic Director Dr. Vincent Alessi will  
be giving a lecture at 5pm, followed by the opening at 6pm.

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.

Me Here Now: Identity and Place in Contemporary Australian Art is  
mounted in line with the partnership between the Thesis Eleven Centre  
for Cultural Sociology of La Trobe University and the Philippines  
Australia Studies Network of the Ateneo de Manila University.  The  
exhibition will run until 5 August 2011.  For more information, call
