Caught Stealing is an exhibition by contemporary Australian artists who mobilise theft as an artistic strategy in their work.
A century after the first Dada photomontages, misappropriation continues in the diverse practices of artists demanding social justice, revisions of history, and ecological awareness. Motifs of piracy also signify resistance to the corporate control of the cultural sphere, as well as colonisation and its legacy in Australia.
