A male-presenting figure dressed in black stands in front of a yellow sculptural block airbrushed with the red Chinese character for 'Battery', situated on an illuminated white plinth. On the wall is a projection of a video still showing an East Asian male-presenting figure wearing glasses.

Join The Invisible Hand exhibiting artist Baden Pailthorpe and exhibition curator Micheal Do for a traditional Chinatown breakfast at a much-loved local eatery followed by a walkthrough of the exhibition and a discussion of some of the stories and ideas behind the artists’ works and the themes explored in The Invisible Hand.

The Invisible Hand considers how digital platform technologies are exploiting technological convenience to co-opt personal data in an uncertain zero-sum game. With work from Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Japan, this exhibition explores current and projected complications and contradictions in the digital realm that increasingly oscillate between technological evangelism and scepticism.

$25.00 +bf, includes breakfast. This program is included as part of our public programs for The Invisible Hand, book here
