Contact brings together a group of diverse emerging artists exploring the themes of race, identity, politics, migration, and modern slavery through photography, painting, sculpture and installation and video. Although each artist has a different experience, they have a shared understanding. Their practice engages in a process of auto-ethnography, where they connect their personal history and circumstances to broader cultural, social and political concerns. These stories are often not well known due to lack of avenues of communication.
Contact won a Fringe Weekly Award for Best Arts and Design, and has been highlighted as a Fringe stand out in the visual arts category. This is the first time I've ever had my work displayed alongside international artists, in such a diverse range of mediums. It was challenging and exciting to create new work along these themes. Exhibition open until March 26th.
