After the success of the opening night at Campbelltown Arts Centre, the artist (and quite a big audience) returned for the 2012 Artist Talks.

Aaron Seeto, Director, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art opened the Artist Talks before handing over to Dr. Thomas Berghuis. As one of the original curators of Edge of Elsewhere, Thomas provided a valuable insight into the progress that the project has made over it’s three years. Thomas facilitated a conversation with artists Arahmaiani, Khaled Sabsabi and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, discussing the role of the artist in contemporary society.
