September 2010: Exhibiting Artists: Jayne Dyer

Australian Jayne Dyer has been making art for a long time. In the early 90's this remarkable installation artist began travelling back and forth between her home country, Hong Kong and Beijing. Her installations are directed at compelling people to review fundamental assumptions.

The public responds to this artist; her work is popular and institutionally funded. She often creates work under the auspices of funding bodies that include the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australia-China Council.

Dyer's installation A Reading has been touring China in Process-Journey, an exhibition celebrating the 35th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Australia and China and the Beijing Olympics. The inaugural exhibition opened at Red Gate Gallery and at the Australian Embassy in Beijing in 2007, and toured to Eastlink Gallery in Shanghai and the Sino Group Art Project Space, Hong Kong in 2008.
