The Wisdom of Others

Khadim Ali, Shahroud Ghahani, Savanhdary Vongpoothorn, Guo Jian & Ah Xian


29 May - 29 June


“The world is a vast network of interconnections, and our identities are constantly shaped by encounters with others.” Attrib. V.Y. Mudimbe.

The Wisdom of Others is an exhibition presenting works of five diverse and significant artists who, as part of their life journey, have at some point in their lives experienced displacement due to political conflict or natural disasters. Having been born in Pakistan, Iran, Lao PDR & China respectively these artist’s oeuvre reflect both their personal histories, cultural identities and the wider narrative of contemporary Australia. Their unique voices are equally global and historically literate, whilst at the same time, grounded in the here and now. The works manifest the beauty of pluralism and the flourishing of culture when hybridity is not only embraced but celebrated. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” 

The Wisdom of Others is presented by Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios in partnership with Lane Cove Council and our lending partners as part of Refugee Week 2024.
