The recipient of the 2024 Porter Street Commission, Salomone’s practice spans four decades, over 30 solo shows and more than 70 group exhibitions.

In Fragments; a widening vision, he poetically weaves together form and image, interlacing memory with personal and ancestral histories. Grounded in intergenerational learning, this work acknowledges First Nations country and offers an understanding of settler colonial experience.

His work is often informed by his Australian-Italian heritage, and in Fragments; a widening vision he sows new seeds of connectivity between migrant histories and the enduring cultural practices sustained by First Nations people.

This 2024 Porter Street Commission is an example of allyship and nurturing storytelling. Envisaged as a metaphorical garden cared for by elders, family, and educators, and proposing a site for growth, the installation spans the gallery floor.

ACE is open Tuesday to Saturday, 11am–4pm. Entry is free.
