“Diverse Screens” is a series of short films and artist profiles by culturally diverse artists and film makers commissioned by Diversity Arts Australia. The films present diverse views on the challenges and stereotypes of being a multicultural artist in Australia. Presented alongside “Farrago” an evolving audience-participatory pictorial wonderland by Russian Adelaide based artist Anna Cherkasova.
As part of Diversity Arts Australia’s Beyond Tick Boxes: Cultural Diversity in the Arts in Sydney , DARTS commissioned Maria Tran, Ali Mousawi, Roxie Vuong and Thuy Nguyen to take on the theme of cultural diversity in the arts. These films are specifically designed to provoke, inspire and generate discussion. Shake up your perspective and reset your understanding of what arts diversity means and could mean.
The exhibition also includes three short interviews with First Nations visual artist Blak Douglas, dancer Aruna Gandhi and parkour artist Ali Kadhim, who talk about issues of diversity and inclusion in their industries.
Nexus Arts is excited to premiere this project in Adelaide as part of the Fringe Festival.
