Ian Strange: Suburban Interventions 2008 – 2020,  is the first ever large scale survey of the artist’s photographic and film work. It represents a comprehensive overview of the past 12 years of his thought provoking practice, featuring full suites of the most iconic photographic work as well as three rarely seen films that collectively explore the enigma of the suburban.

Strange, who was born in Western Australia, now lives and works between New York and Melbourne.  He is best known for community-based monumental site-specific suburban intervention projects and has worked with communities in the US and New Zealand in recent years to transform full-scale residential homes to reveal layers of experience and aspiration often hidden behind the conventional facades of normality of suburban life. The artist’s ambitious onsite transformations of full-scale residential homes resonate with the trauma and impact of natural disaster as well as unfulfilled dreams of communities living through profound financial despair on the fringes of an elusive suburban utopia.
