I Am, You Are, We Are
Three photographers explore what it means to be an outsider in contemporary Australia.
May 04, 2015
A trio of female photographers will tackle issues of migration, xenophobia and privilege, in a new photographic exhibition as part of this year’s Human Rights Arts and Film Festival. Presented by HRAFF in association with Chapter House Lane, and hosted in an unlikely pop-up gallery inside St. Paul’s Cathedral, I Am, You Are, We Are will explore what it means to be an outsider in contemporary Australia.
Curator Anna Louise Richardson has tapped a trio of photographers: Olga Cironis, Eva Fernández and Marziya Mohammedali. Each artist will draw on personal experience, using their photography as a way to consider alternative notions of home in the face of Australia’s highly politicised attitudes towards ethnicity and migration.
The exhibition runs from May 7 until the end of the month, and will be included as part of the HRAFF Visual Arts Walking Tour on Saturday, May 16. It's open Sunday to Friday 8am– 6pm, and on Saturdays 9am– 4pm (and you won't be able to see the exhibition during cathedral services.
