      EVENT DETAILS
      People of Substance by Jason Wing

      Date/s: May 18 - August 26, 2012 Every: Daily Time: 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
      On May 18, the Kluge-Ruhe Collection opens a new exhibition of contemporary Aboriginal art titled People of Substance by Jason Wing. This exhibition includes a variety of site-specific installations by the artist, including Blacktown Dreaming, a bed composed of hypodermic syringes. People of Substance explores the idea that drug and alcohol abuse among Aboriginal people is a by-product of colonization, and addresses the fact that this is often overlooked by mainstream Australia. Rather than reinforce negative stereotypes, Wing aims to openly address the issue of addiction in regards to both Aboriginal Australia and the wider community.
