Settled / Unsettled

Settled / Unsettled

Presented to coincide with Refugee Week, Settled / Unsettled uses the universal language of visual art to address personal and profound issues faced by Australia’s asylum seekers, refugees and migrants.

The artists included in Settled / Unsettled examine how experiences of conflict, the separation of families and cultural displacement shape the lives of new Australians, and how issues of hybrid-identity, intergenerational trauma and guilt affect first-and second-generation immigrants.

Initiated by artist Kathrin Longhurst, Settled / Unsettled hopes to encourage empathy, empower and acknowledge the important role migrants have had in the making of our nation.
