Glen Eira Council Art Gallery, 6th – 29th May 2016

 

Curator, Dr Helen Light, has brought together a group of artists of different backgrounds who work with a variety of media.  They have been asked to respond to personal and collective histories and viewpoints regarding the trauma of war, and The Holocaust in particular.  The artists' interpretation of contemporary portraiture further encourages a critical engagement with ideas around memorialization and representation.

 

The exhibition honours post-war refugees who journeyed across the globe in order to establish new lives and families.  Their stories are pertinent to current debates concerning refugees and asylum seekers.
