The Board of the Cairns Art Gallery and Director, Andrea May Churcher, invite you to attend the exhibition opening event of FASHIONING BLACK IDENTITY Africa and the African Diaspora.
FASHIONING BLACK IDENTITY Africa and the African Diaspora explores ways in which contemporary black African artists are using fashion, photography and portraiture to redefine personal and cultural identity. The exhibition brings together works by six prominent artists from Africa and the African diaspora who use photography and different spatial, corporal and temporal reference points as devices to explore and unpack perceptions of race and being.
Guest Speaker: Nick Mitzevich Director, National Gallery of Australia.
All are welcome and RSVPs are appreciated, there will be a cash bar and light refreshments available.
