Perth raised but NY based artist Ian Strange is at F.A.C for his latest exhibition ISLAND.

This exhibition explores the themes of family, community and safety as Strange investigates architecture and the home.
‘Approaching it through the metaphor of the desert island, a place of refuge and sovereignty but simultaneously entrapment,
Strange highlights how fragile and unstable home is in the wake of the GFC and the ensuing housing crisis.’

Strange rose to international prominence as a street artist in the early 2000’s.
