Re-inscriptions brings a new perspective into the study of Asian Australians and Aboriginals through the common language of art. Aboriginal and Asian cultural experiences of living in Australia provide new perspectives about the potential of Australian culture. In this exhibition a variety of artists’ voices present observational, personal and political knowledge of culture and community. These artists represent the viewpoint of a minority within the Australian population and their artworks uncover personal experiences and perspectives, whilst also relating to the richness of Australia’s minority communities themselves. This exhibition explores the numerous parallels of community responsibility and challenging dominant orthodoxies within the arts establishment.
