Asylum Silk Roads

The installation has moved to Library at The Dock, where it will be on display on the second floor over the next few weeks. If you’ve missed the chance to take in the completed work, Library at The Dock is a short walk from Southern Cross Station, or simply take the number 11 or 48 tram down Collins Street to find yourself right outside.
