Dead Centre

Published: Thursday, 1 February 2018 at 2:01:00 PM

Dead Centre is a group exhibition curated by Anna Louise Richardson and Abdul-Rahman Abdullah that aims to articulate the problematic expectations on the individual in finding their place in a social landscape characterised by simplistic and divisive assumptions.

The exhibition aims to contextualise a group of artistic voices from around the country that explores and celebrate marginalised identities in the broader spectrum of a multicultural society. The exhibition looks at what is in your sphere - right in front of you, and how the rest is about perception. Drawing on the experiences of artists connected to different communities including Aboriginal, Polynesian, Persian, Thai, Greek, Italian, Malay, LGBQTI and Muslim, the exhibition offers a point of access to individual outlooks that contribute and enrich the Australian social landscape.

"Dead Centre is the inverse of the rest of us. It takes you into ten different worlds in which the artists' own experiences occupy centre stage." - Curator, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah
