Crossing Borders is an education resource that explores challenging philosophical, cultural and environmental issues of our times through the work of five contemporary artists practising within the Commonwealth: Bani Abidi, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, eX de Medici, Yee I-Lann and Yinka Shonibare. These artists discuss their work in candid film interviews that are accompanied by detailed artist biographies. Students are encouraged to explore the ideas and issues the artists raise through a series of questions, discussion points and learning activities.
