For some Australians it’s a water feature and a double car garage; for others it’s freedom from persecution. Dream Home examines Australian values through the metaphor of the home, asking us to reflect on what we dream about, the price we’d pay to make those dreams come true, and the disparity that often exists between the dream and the reality.
From mortgages and McMansions to Indigenous housing and refugees, the homes of our dreams are a potent reflection of our sense of entitlement, our values and our aspirations. In this exhibition eleven Australian photomedia artists take a critical look at the conflicted and contradictory nature of our Dream Homes.
