Thinking of Place iii is an international collaborative print exhibition that involves 87 artists from 16 printmaking groups participating with new artworks. The exhibition invites artists to invoke a legend, myth, story or an aspect of ancestral heritage in relation to their personal identification with geography and environment. Cultural associations with concepts of land, country, colonisation and collective memories that adhere to places can thus be layered in potentially complex ways. This international collaboration represents individual responses to both specific localities and shared cultural legacies.

The project constitutes an ambitious cultural exchange, involving groups from Argentina, Australia (x3), Canada, Denmark, Guam, New Zealand (x2), Turkey, United Kingdom (x2) and United States of America (x3).
