With a considered rather than confrontational approach, these works highlight both the presence and the absence of the individual, exposing the shared nature of humanity – the pain and sorrow we feel knowing that one can inflict such sadness on another.

Artists include Vernon Ah Kee, Tony Albert, Richard Bell, Paddy Bedford, Daniel Boyd, Fiona Hall, William Kentridge, Rusty Peters, Ben Quilty, Pedro Reyes, Doris Salcedo, Timmy Timms, Hossein Valamanesh, Kara Walker and Judy Watson.
