Diaspora Pavilion 2
Diaspora Pavilion 2: I am a beating heart in the world
Co-curated by Mikala Tai, Adelaide Bannerman and Jessica Taylor
May 22 - July 25
Campbelltown Art Centre
In partnership with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and the International Curator’s Forum (ICF), C-A-C presents I am a heart beating in the world: Diaspora Pavilion 2. The exhibition considers the navigations, imaginings and lived experiences of six artists based in Australia, the UK and the Caribbean: Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Kashif Nadim Chaudry, Lindy Lee, Leyla Stevens, Zadie Xa and Daniela Yohannes.
The exhibition is an ongoing project that explores the distinct and yet shared reality of living at distance to an ancestral home. Belonging to a diaspora means that connection to these ancestral homes is often maintained through memories, myths and traditions. The artists presented in the exhibition all explore these personal connections. The exhibition is the first of a series of international events that begin in Sydney, then London, UK, and onward to Venice, Italy for the second edition of International Curators Forum’s (ICF) Diaspora Pavilion in collaboration with 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
