The exhibition reflects the creative journey of an award-winning Chinese Australian artist Wang Lan who grew up in China and later migrated to Australia. Her artistic journey is divided into three periods. The first part shows her works created in China; the second part includes the works created during 1991 to 2001, the first ten years of her moving to Australia when she was caught in the middle of juggling between two cultures; and the last part reveals her pursuit of an unified inner world of life and nature

‘Wild Hearts & Warm Spirits’ is a School of Humanities and Communication Arts' outbound global mobility study program. Over 14 days, students were immersed in the Inner-Mongolian culture and rugged landscapes, travelling outside of the main cities and meeting locals in small rural communities. The curated collection of student photography represents a transformative journey – one where a select group of Western students, some of whom had never travelled outside of Australia, undertook their first ‘photographic assignment’ abroad.
