Personal mythologies explores the role that fantasy and imagination play in our constructions of self and our relationships to place and history. This thematic group exhibition brings together sculpture, installation, textiles and painting by seven Australian and international artists whose work points towards diasporic, transcultural perspectives, forming new narratives. The artists address elements of folklore, mythology and storytelling in their work, complicating ideas of cultural translation and personal identity.

The exhibition complements In our time. Four decades of art from China and beyond: the Geoff Raby Collection, opening 20 August at Bendigo Art Gallery. In our time presents more than 65 works from this vibrant La Trobe University collection together for the first time.
