Culture Guide: Lockdown Edition
September 20th 2021
Time Pass Exhibition
“As we experience lockdown we have become even more aware of the present – the day to day. Time Pass explores the experience of ‘passing time’. This exhibition offers us an opportunity to pause, slow down and pay attention to the moments that offer us joy and wonder, at the little things that we might take for granted in our everyday lives.
Through the lens of two artists Mylyn Nguyen and Garry Trinh, Time Pass explores experiences of place, history and the passing of time in Bankstown and its surrounds.”
Enjoy the experience here, free!
