Opening night: 8 March
Translating Displacement, presents a place for visual storytelling, exploring the cross-cultural aesthetics that
reflect the growing global trend of transience and displacement. In 2015 over 65 million people worldwide were displaced through war, persecution and natural disaster. This is a record number impacting communities on a global scale. Through digital media works, refugee and asylum seeker artists from Sydney, share their stories of families fleeing war and their settlement in Australia. The exhibition also showcases a series of mixed media paintings by local artist and recent migrant, Farina Salehi, who explores ideas of cross-cultural identity. Together, these works assert the beautiful and fundamental rights of every human being to freedom and peace.
Artists: Farina Salehi, Soheil Ettehadlagh, Hayder AlBdairi, Guido Gonzalez and Saif Jari, Sean Ly, Dani Sitto, Adam McPhilbin, Samia Halabi, Mohammed Alanezi
