Like Us is an exhibition of sculptures, paintings, drawings and video works by internationally respected Australian artist Patricia Piccinini. The exhibition premieres new works alongside significant pieces from the last fifteen years, including two important works from the Newcastle Art Gallery collection.

Like Us presents an immersive world where the natural and the artificial meet and mingle. At every turn the viewer encounters unexpected places and unusual occupants that are both unsettling and appealing. Piccinini’s creatures entreat us to look beyond the strangeness to search for the commonality that links all living things.
