IKEA Springvale HOME Event
IKEA Springvale is proudly sponsoring this year's HOME, an annual exhibition of works by artists with an asylum seeker background, presented by the City of Greater Dandenong.
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. The exhibition showcases artists as artists, rather than framing their art practice within the bounds of their refugee story.
