The Politics of Imagination

Date: Thursday 5 May – Saturday 28 May 2016

Venue: Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre

Address: Corner Walker and Robinson streets, Dandenong

AMES Australia is a sponsor of the exhibition, The Politics of Imagination, a series of artwork by young emerging Hazara artists from Afghanistan and Pakistan, born and raised during the war or in exile. Hazaras, deprived of basic rights in Afghanistan have remained isolated from art and education for over a century. As access to these mediums increased over time, emerging artists have used arts to express their sufferings of the persecution and discrimination.

Curated by Barat Ali Batoor.
