250_ Raj SuriJuly 2017 Artists of the Month: DisConnex Artists


Film, Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Placards and Costumes


Disconnex is an exhibition showcasing salvaged heritage items from homes destroyed due to WestConnex, alongside artworks by artists concerned with, 
and responding to its capacity to negatively impact communities in its wake. They cleverly employ wit, honesty, and artistry to communicate their responses to WestConnex, often by affordable means and cheaply sourced materials.
Their efforts remind city planners that it actually is important to listen to the
community when planning the future of our city of Sydney.Pip Hinman 250
