Experience the incredible scale and detail of these contemporary works in the indoor-outdoor exhibition On Sharks & Humanity

Internationally acclaimed curator Huang Du brings us On Sharks & Humanity - a thought-provoking contemporary art exhibition about shark protection showcasing work from some of China’s leading contemporary artists.

The Sydney exhibition will also feature works by Australian Indigenous artists that explore sharks as totems and our relationship to them, alongside photographs and artefacts from leading ocean environmentalist Valerie Taylor, who with her late husband Ron Taylor, transformed themselves from spear fishers to shark protectors.

On Sharks & Humanity was conceived by Parkview Arts Action China and launched in Monaco in 2014, and has since travelled to Moscow, Beijing, Hong Kong and Singapore.
