"Where did we get to, David, in terms of Australia and New Zealand relations?" - Cushla Donaldson
501s is a work by Cushla Donaldson which invited prisoners detained under the Australian Immigration Act of 2014 to participate in the live streaming component of an installation at the Melbourne Art Fair in 2018. The project highlighted the plight of approximately 1300 New Zealand citizens held without criminal charges by the Australian government on suspicion of 'criminal conduct'. 501s is now showing in The Shouting Valley: Interrogating the Borders Between Us a group exhibition at Auckland's Gus Fisher Gallery until 14 December.
