The Narrative of Location (Open)

Proudly supported by Yarra City Council, The Narrative of Location is a group exhibition curated by Shivanjani Lal where 8 artists of multiple cultures will explore how belonging to a diasporic community alters and informs a location (the gallery) with meaning. In an attempt to document the undocumented historical and emotional connection each feels in recreating/owning their sense of place a mapping will occur encompassing and drawn from place, language, bodies and vexillology (flags). In this mapping we hope to evoke conversations around the quiet stories of the migrant and minority experience.
