The paintings in Kristin Tennyson's latest exhibition explore how identities are shaped by creed, allegiance and national doctrine; often formed early on in life. The title of exhibition, a common prize name which is given to the best of all breeds in a competition, is playfully employed as a metaphor to question which values and identities we aspire to by means of cultural and nationalistic influences.

Location: Gallerysmith, 170-174 Abbotsford Street, North Melbourne VIC 3051
