Start off your Art Month Sydney adventures in Redfern and Chippendale with artist talks at UTS Gallery by Jess Bradford, N. Breedon, Kevin Diallo and Thea Anamara Perkins

I will tell you my story is a group exhibition curated by Talia Smith that engages with some of the 800+ artworks in the UTS Art Collection to consider how the collection can be re-read in light of the present, challenged as an archive, and imagined anew. New commissions and loans by artists Christopher Bassi, Jess Bradford, N. Breedon, Kevin Diallo, Jazz Money, Thea Anamara Perkins and Genevieve Felix Reynolds, are shown in conversation with works from the Collection by Tony Albert, Dion Beasley, Reg Campbell, Lex Dickson, Marian Drew, Vanessa Inkamala, Mabel Juli, Jumaadi, Sam Leach, Eun-Jong Lee, Guy Maestri, Sanné Mestrom, Henry Moore, Joycie Pitjarra Morton, Peter Newry, Sidney Nolan, William Pidgeon, Margaret Preston, Jude Rae, Kate Scardifield, Pamela Thalben-Ball, Christian Thompson, Judy Watson, Emma White and Xia Xiong, to bring new context to the UTS Art Collection, its history and future.

The exhibition continues to 1 April 2022
