About Shelley:

Shelley Cheng is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives on the stolen Aboriginal land of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples. Her work draws from her experience of diaspora. She has exhibited throughout Brisbane in local cafes, shops, pop-up art spaces and artist-run initiatives. Shelley’s art also appears in political campaigns, community events, and fundraisers. She is currently undertaking an artist residency through Visible Ink while completing her undergraduate studies at QUT in Law (Honours)/ Journalism. She is interested in abolition, critical race theory and transformative justice.

This project is presented as a part of Brisbane City Council's Temporary Art Program 2019, produced by Metro Arts and people+artist+place, and made possible through the support of QUT Life and Curiocity.
