Anarchy is ‘a state of disorder; the absence or non-recognition of authority and controlling systems’. Our people fought long and hard for recognition of our place in this country. Many artists have dedicated their careers to creating art that challenges the system that we all live in. Alchemy is ‘a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation and combination’. We are alchemy. The magic of survival in this beautiful, abundant land with an unbroken spiritual connection.

Nov 2 to Dec 1 Gallery 1: Until the sky falls down on me by Kieran Butler. This exhibition is Kieran’s imagining of their own Australian-Mauritian familial histories in order to defy, resist and unlearn the melancholy of climate change and colonisation that has been left as a legacy to them.
Gallery 2: say swear by Leila El Rayes & Justine Youssef – exhibits the collaborative work of Leila el Rayes and Justine Youssef in Peacock Gallery, Auburn. Their project collapses fantasy and the real to present a utopic futurity. It becomes an act of resistance against the policing of queer and leb/habib subcultures, and a gesture of resilience through negotiations of safety, binaries and shame within each.
