Next up at Gaffa Gallery is Chindia – a group exhibition exploring the multiplicity of migrant identities in Australia. Showcasing six artists with Chinese and Indian heritage working across various disciplines, the show explores a complex array of themes including politics, displacement, performance, folklore, colonial legacy, violence, diaspora histories and issues of cultural and national identity. Featuring work from Anindita Banerjee, Anurendra Jegadeva, Guo Jian, Lilian Lai, Lucy Wang and Texta Queen alongside short films, Chindia invites its audience to share in the inspirations, motivations and family stories of the artists and performers involved, whilst asking what the lessons learnt mean for the future. Gallery manager and show curator Kimberley Peel explains the exhibition “aims to increase community engagement and participation to create an inclusive, culturally rich, diverse and vibrant society” by both increasing the visibility of migrant artist communities and providing a forum for them to engage with one another creatively. A short run from February 15-26, don’t miss out.
