The Art of Dissent'
Curated by Yvonne Rees-Pagh
SAC Major Curated Exhibition
2 August – 14 September
Our world today is struggling with major economic crisis, war still rages in some parts of the world, pollution and climate change are wreaking havoc on the natural environment, religious prejudice and racism still exists and the forced displacement of thousands of people in countries like Syria is causing great human distress. Faced with these problems it can take courage to publically voice dissent. The artists chosen to exhibit in Giving Voice are unafraid to use their art to voice their concerns with the pressing social and political issues facing us today.
LONG GALLERY: Saturday 2 August – Sunday 14 September 2014
'The Long Weekend at Alice Springs'
The Long Weekend in Alice Springs is a graphic novel by Joshua Santospirito that has been adapted from an essay that explores the idea of the Cultural Complex; developed from the work of Carl Jung on group behaviour that was left largely unexplored until very recently in the academic world. Craig San Roque, the author of the original essay, acts as narrator and protagonist. He takes the reader throughout a long series of poetic thoughts, places and over the course of a long weekend in the central Australian desert town of Alice Springs whilst he grapples with an analysis of his own culture and the pain which it intentionally and unintentionally inflicts upon other cultures.
TOP GALLERY: Friday 1 - Sunday 31 August
