Near x Far presents a constellation of spaces connected by the artists who occupy them. Artists from Western Sydney were invited to document the spaces in which they dwell.  These spaces include the physical home but expand further afield into natural landscapes, thoroughfares and the metaphysical world. The  result is a map of Western Sydney as a centre from which a myriad of spaces and movements radiate.

Also included is a material exploration of how space might be mapped, marked and remembered across a range of forms including photography, light, sound, performance, sculpture and pattern making.

Near x Far reveals  new perspectives on Western Sydney through artists Rebecca Gallo, Matthew James, Murasaki Penguin, Shireen Taweel, Grace Toiava, Hannah Toohey, and Vaughan and Vincent Wozniak-O’Connor.
