Ararat Gallery TAMA
Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia) is pleased to be hosting Siying Zhou, our Artist in Residence throughout November.
Born in China, Zhou is a Melbourne-based artist whose installation works utilise various media such as video, photography, textiles, performance and drawing to examine the cultural in-betweenness of being Chinese-Australian.
Zhou’s residency will focus on the Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre’s collection and Ararat’s Chinese history. She will get to know the community through workshops for school groups and community members, as well as designing a drop-in kids craft activity for the TAMA foyer. Zhou’s residency will support the development of her exhibition with Ararat Gallery TAMA in March 2020.

Drop-in kids craft activity – 20 November 2019 onwards
