24th June


The Store @ Abbotsford Convent

A Sense of Self Poster Teaser.jpg

Platform Exhibitions present 'A Sense of Self' - a pop up group art exhibition exploring Identity and Belonging.

At the heart of Identity and Belonging, is the question of who we are, how we understand ourselves and the role of our relationships with others in shaping our sense of self.


With a unique lens on these timeless questions, our artists will offer a thought-provoking and introspective experience that encourages viewers to reflect on their own identity and the complex interplay between the individual and the collective.


We invite you to join us in this exploration of the very essence of what it means to be human.
