Tait Store

In 2011 the world is scattered with people and products of Australian heritage. In turn, Australia is now home to some of the world’s most interesting and inspiring creatives. AU.THENTIC explores the way that Australia is engaged with the world creatively both here and abroad. Through the changes in technology, travel and lifestyle choices, Australia has become a global force in creativity across all disciplines. We not only export our product but also our talent, and we import the same – making the melting pot that is Australia a new creative force bedded in the roots of Australian traditions. AU.THENTIC’s online presence includes a user-generated map where Australian creatives can add their location, picture and link, showing the groundswell of Australian creative globally and giving the exhibition a life outside the gallery.
