Time Pass

Loved the virtual Time Pass exhibition we held during lockdown? This is your chance to see it in person at Bankstown Arts Centre!
Time Pass explores the experience of ‘passing time’. This exhibition offers us an opportunity to pause, slow down and pay attention to the moments that offer us joy and wonder, at the little things that we might take for granted in our everyday lives.
Through the lens of two artists Mylyn Nguyen and Garry Trinh, Time Pass explores experiences of place, history and passing of time in Bankstown and its surrounds.
When: 1-28 September
Where: Bankstown Arts Centre
Cost: FREE

Artists Bios:

Mylyn Nguyen has developed several solo exhibitions that have humorously explored her childhood memories and curiosities. These comprehensive bodies of work, as well as several smaller projects, have varied in appearance, approach and materials yet all are imbued with an incredible skill and wondrous imagination that continues to extend the sense of spectacle and intrigue her artworks generate.


Garry Trinh is an artist working in photography, video, painting and works on paper. He makes art about the uncanny, unexpected and spontaneous moments in daily life. He is inspired by his surroundings and from the vast visual output of mass culture. His works are about a way of looking at the world, to reveal magic in the mundane. He is never bored and never late.
