APA & West Space | Sincerely Yours


Curated by Sophia Cai, Sincerely Yours is a group exhibition across two neighbouring galleries at Collingwood Yards: Arts Project Australia and West Space. The exhibition will bring together a wide range of contemporary artists, including Arts Project studio artists, exploring fandom theory and the different ways artists and audiences engage with objects or subjects that inspire fannish love and devotion.

Sincerely Yours brings together artists whose work speaks to the deep, earth-shattering passion for popular culture. We all have desires that keep us grounded, even when the world around us feels like it’s falling apart. Exhibiting artists include Alanna Dodd, Amy Meng, Ari Tampubolon, Carly Snoswell, Daniel Pace, Danny Lyons, Dylan Goh, Jenny Ngo, Mel Dixon, Miles Howard-Wilks, Nick Capaldo, and Raquel Caballero. Room sheets can be viewed here.

An exhibition zine is available to collect, it contains newly commissioned fan fiction texts by Natasha Hertanto, Jinghua Qian, Diego Ramirez and Sunanda Sachatrakul. The first 200 zines come with a limited edition risograph printed cover featuring work by Jenny Ngo. The essays are also being hosted by West Space Offsite and are available to read here and the zine downloaded here.

Join Arts Project Australia and West Space to celebrate the closing weekend of Sincerely Yours. On Saturday 5 March 2022, join exhibition curator Sophia Cai and artists Danny Lyons and Dylan Goh for an artist talk at 2pm. Followed by writers Natasha Hertanto, Diego Ramirez and Jinghua Qian doing readings of their newly commissioned fan-fictions. Dance group AO crew will bring the K-pop moves at 3pm and the bar will be open. This event will be Auslan interpreted. Event details can be found here.
