Dead Centre

Curated by Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Anna Louise Richardson, ‘Dead Centre’ brings together photographic and video works by ten artists and artist groups exploring and celebrating the cultural diversity of Australian identity. Drawing on personal connections to marginalised communities including Aboriginal, Polynesian, Persian, Thai, Greek, Italian, Malay, LGBQTI and Muslim, the artists articulate individual experiences of trying to forge an identity in a socio-political landscape marked by simplistic and divisive rhetoric. ‘Dead Centre’ is an ART ON THE MOVE touring exhibition.
