Gallery One and Two
Opening Thursday 3 October to Saturday 2 November
Launch Event, Saturday 5 October, 2pm - 4pm

Artists: Baaqiy Ghazali, Salah Murad, Sha Sarwari, Zakiria Tahirian, Zahra Ali and Saba Hakim

HOME is an exhibition for artists with an asylum seeker and refugee background. The exhibition showcases artists as artists, rather than framing their art practice within the bounds of their refugee story. Their artwork may or may not speak about the refugee experience. Instead their works reflect their interests as artists.

In 2019, HOME continues its ambition to showcase emerging and established artists from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds and celebrate the enormous contribution that they bring to our community, both in the City of Greater Dandenong and beyond.

The works in the exhibition cover a diverse range of ideas and issues, many which we are all grappling with, from change to sustainability to peace. The resounding theme that echoes throughout the exhibition is one of identity – finding, creating and celebrating our own individual identities and where we fit in broader society –feeling at home within ourselves, within our community and within our world.

This year's six artists, Zahra Ali and Saba Hakim, Baaqiy Ghazali, Salah Murad, Sha Sarwari and Zakiria Tahirian, have lived in Australia for various amounts of time, but each has already made a significant impact on society, both through their artistic endeavours and outside of them. These artists were chosen to exhibit in HOME both for their vision and for their skill, but also for their potential.

In addition to showcasing the works by these artists, the aim of HOME is to nurture and encourage each artist’s practice. To support the creation of new work for the exhibition, each artist has been awarded $1,000 – courtesy of IKEA Springvale. The exhibiting artists have also had the opportunity to be mentored by artists and curators Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Shini Pararajasingham and Mohamed Abumeis, receiving advice and support in the lead up to the exhibition.

As Australia’s most culturally diverse city, The City of Greater Dandenong celebrates our diversity, with residents from 157 birth places, and we also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of this land, their spirits and ancestors. At Walker Street Gallery and more broadly across the municipality, we have a responsibility to make our spaces and places feel like home, whether you work, play or live in the area.

As part of the exhibition programing, the City of Greater Dandenong will run exhibition launch event and a series of workshops in this October. See more details on greaterdandenong.com/home.
