ALTERED STATES


23 October - 27 February
Gallery 2-3


This exhibition is about change in places of cultural significance in Canberra. It tells stories of Canberra buildings that have been demolished, preserved or repurposed. Some were the subject of vigorous debate, others just slipped silently away, and others are awaiting a decision on their future.
Examining what we keep and how we keep it reveals common community values. It helps us to understand our past and the role that a sense of place plays in community. The cultural landscape of Canberra provides a link between the past, present and future; it evidences the continuing story of human habitation of the Limestone Plains.
