Summary

"Dead Centre aims to contextualise a group of artistic voices from around the country that explores and celebrate marginalised identities in the broader spectrum of a multicultural society. The exhibitions articulates the problematic expectations of the individual in finding their place in a social landscape characterised by simplistic and divisive assumptions. Drawing on the experiences of artists connected to different communities including Aboriginal, Polynesian, Persian, Thai, Greek, Italian, Malay, LGBQTI and Muslim, the exhibition offers a point of access to individual outlooks that contribute and enrich the Australian social landscape."--Cover verso.
