Translating Displacement shares the stories of former refugees and asylum seeker artists, citizens and non-citizens of Australia whose families fled war to settle in Australia and features the cross cultural aesthetics that reflect the global trend in transience and displacement.  

This exhibition showcases a collection of photo-media and video works made by Sydney based artists who are former refugees, current asylum seekers and first generation Australians. Farina Salehi, is an Iranian artist living in Australia whose paintings are influenced by the textiles of nomadic people of Shiraz, combined with the Western notions of abstraction. With a focus on the fusion of cultural traditions, the artworks assert the beautiful and fundamental rights of every human being to freedom and peace.

The exhibition incorporates artworks from the CuriousWorks program that was initiated through a partnership with Settlement Services International’s Arts Program.

Artists: Farina Salehi, Soheil Ettehadolhagh, Hayder Al Bdairi, Dani Sitto, Khaled Mariam, Guido Gonzalez, Karina Gonzalez, Samia Halabi, Adam McPhilbin, Sean Ly, with support from Claudia Chidiac and Valerie Berry.
