An experimental art exhibition at Nexus Arts.
‘The unity of oppression’ explores what unites and divides us: We share a finite planet, what futures will we forge from the infinity of darkness?
Playing with the duality of light and dark, using acrylics, sculpture and multi-media, five artists from culturally diverse backgrounds create a journey into the complexities of power, privilege and oppression – inviting you to peel away hidden layers and join them on a creative crime scene investigation of our shared humanity.
‘What Privilege?’ is a national Change Media initiative, exploring with a range of diverse partners, how we can creatively notice, disrupt and reframe colonizing mindsets and behaviors that maintain privilege and reinforce oppression.
This South Australian collaboration is co-led by interdisciplinary Ngarrindjeri-Chinese artist Damien Shen [painting, mixed media], with Change Media’s artistic director, Jen Lyons-Reid [line art, poetry, mixed media] and creative producer, Carl Kuddell [poetry, mixed media], and emerging artists Emilijia Kasumovic [drawing] and Jelena Vujnovic [drawing].
