I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE

  • Chapter House art image

Curated by Anna Louise Richardson, I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE explores the experience of migration and the ‘outsider’ in Australia.

Bringing together the work of Olga Cironis, Eva Fernández and Marziya Mohammedali this exhibition provides a visual exploration of three women’s experiences in making and  exploring a new home. Engaging artists whose works examine themes of identity and dislocation, I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE examines the Australian cultural landscape and its attitudes to welcoming or accepting difference. Embedded within the broader Australian narrative of xenophobia and privilege, this exhibition employs photography, sculpture and installation to consider alternative perceptions of home as a means of reassessing the politicised nature of ethnicity in Australia.

 

I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE is supported by NAVA. The Australian Artists’ Grant is a NAVA initiative, made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mrs Janet Holmes à Court and the support of the Visual Arts Board, Australia Council for the Arts.
