East Wind, curated by Jonathan Kim, presents the works of six emerging artists from different East Asian cultural backgrounds. These artists, from Korea, China, Japan, Vietnam, Tibet and Mongolia, are connected through their visual arts degrees from the University of South Australia.
The exhibition reveals the artists’ experiences of creating new work in isolation, reflecting on their immediate and familial surroundings. Two of the artists who flew back to China and Japan at the beginning of 2020 and are now unable to return to Australia, created their work under different restrictions to the artists who remained here making work in South Australia, during the global pandemic.
East Wind highlights and celebrates the progression of these emerging artists currently living in South Australia from geographically, politically and socially distinct East Asian backgrounds.
