Disobedient Daughters

Featuring Australian and international artists, ‘Disobedient Daughters’ challenges the stereotypes of Asian women in a global context. Curated by Sophia Cai, the exhibition encompasses photography and video – mediums often used to (mis)represent – cutting through the objectification and exoticism of this demographic in popular media. Works comprise personal narratives and self-portraiture, conflating public and private life and offering insight into contemporary Asian female experience. While Cai does not seek to define this experience, the show examines real relations between race, gender, sexuality and societal expectations.
