Other Side was an exhibition that sought to deliver the works of ten young Western Australian artists to Australia’s east coast, bridging the gap between Sydney and Perth, and providing a platform for a meeting of creative perspectives.
Geographic isolation is a feature of Australia that has (to both the population’s benefit and hindrance) characterised this nation and its international relationships. However, this isolation isn’t felt only on a global scale – separated by some four thousand kilometres, and despite the Internet and ease of travel, Western Australia and New South Wales can still feel worlds apart.
The exhibition was presented by aMBUSH Gallery and held in August 2013. It featured work across a range of media including aerosol, painting, illustration, photography and videography, from artists Alton, Anna McEachran, Anya Brock, James Daniel Thomson, Jen Thomas, Jodee Knowles, Kerby Brown, Max Grantis, Paul Deej and Sim Campbell-Pope.
