Hyphenated Biennial launches in Melbourne

Hyphenated Biennial’s aim is to generate dialogues, solidarity and meaningful collaborations between First Nations and Asian diasporic artists. The program is unfolding in Melbourne’s West, on the lands of the Kulin Nation, on view from Saturday 3 December 2021 to the 9th of April 2022.

An exhibition at The Substation will present 10 new commissions from First Nations and Asian diasporic artists, individually expressing their own life experience and collectively showing ‘relativity to each other as artists, cohabiting in the same site but each with their own perspectives.’ The artists reflect how we have been well positioned, especially in the past two years, to consider our existence and also responsibility in the world.
