Awakening Exhibition

Hosted by Abbotsford Convent

Works will explore the conditions of awakening in our daily lives, an exploration of the tensions and interplay between asylum seekers and the wider Australian community, including the lack of clarity between languages and expressions, where various genres align to disrupt cultural identities.

Art awakens when it breaks through barriers, uniting artists and audiences and challenging the assumptions and prejudices that keep us in a sleeping state.
