About the exhibition: The unsettling and liberating nature of social behaviour is explored in Share/Cheat/Unite, an exhibition in three parts: a group show, a research initiative and a series of live offsite commissions. The exhibition delves into the human psyche to consider how altruism, cheating and group formation appear to play a key role in shaping society, but not necessarily in the way we might assume. The group exhibition features an international selection of existing artworks that unpack social psychology by addressing a range of socio-political topics through photography, design, documented performance, collaborative and video-based practices. Sasha Huber deconstructs the racist legacy of a nineteenth-century glaciologist. 

Projects by me in the exhibition include: Rentyhorn (2008); Louis Who? What you should know about Louis Agassiz (2010); KARAKIA - The Resetting Ceremony (2015); My Racism is a Humanism. A Lecture (2013); Agassiz: The Mixed Traces Series. Somatological Triptych of Sasha Huber (2010, 2013, 2015 -) and Agassiz Down Under poster (2016).
