Meggs’ Son of Privelege

>Based on the Alexisonfire lyric ‘we don’t want to be slaves to the sons of privilege’, Meggs' latest exhibition questions personal freedoms and liberties, the right to challenge ideas, politics and blind patriotism. Freedom of thought, self-expression and independence should be admired and we shouldn’t bow to the pressure of social stigmas, expectations, comparison or greed. This exhibition follows Meggs’ sell-out show ‘King for a day’ in Melbourne and Hong Kong and is a continuation of the fragile nature of power, fame and fortune.
