Elsewhere: Travels through Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Iran and Central Asia is a touring exhibition that will visit Wagga Wagga and Griffith in 2018, Dubbo and Port Macquarie in 2019, and Tamworth in 2020.

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Edward Said’s book ‘Orientalism’, acclaimed artists Wendy Sharpe and Bernard Ollis critically reflect on travel and drawing as creative practices to help us witness and understand each other.
