Fair Use is a multimedia exhibition that looks at how the copying, sampling, and recycling of existing material is being used as a creative tool in contemporary culture. The exhibition sets out to foster discussion through the examination of work by contemporary artists and designers who develop alternatives to the way we share ideas, images and objects.

Artists include: Bea Correa, Sze Lin Pang, Line Langballe and Christina Okai Mejborn of Totem Collective, Guy Ben-Nur, Pratchaya Phinthong,  Mark Holmes, Ethan Huber, Joseph Willis, Superflex, Salter/Snowden and Siebren Versteeg. Curated by Brandon Alvendia
