EXHIBITIONS: LANDLESS BODIES
6 Oct 2018 - 11 Nov 2018 | 9.00am - 5.00pm
Our experiences of female identity and culture stay with us regardless of geographical context.
This exhibition brings together the different practices to present a familiarity of concerns that are not bound by geographic, social contexts or time. What these artist share through their individual practice are concerns of female identity and body politics within the domestic realm and public space.
Landless Bodies explores contemporary diasporic Arab women artists’ experiences of gender without fixed locales. Invited artists from Morocco and Australia create a rich cultural experience that reflect the role of women as leaders in the private and public realm. Exploring the relationship of situating the self in past, present and future the exhibition presents an urgency of place and representation of culture.
