1001 Nightmares: Exhibition
June 24 - August 8 | 8:30am - 5:00pm| Free
As a visual activist, the collective series of artwork 1001 Nightmares is Hesam Fetrati’s interpretation of the distress caused through the common, often harmful and global activity of displacement. Works in Fetrati’s exhibition address contemporary issues of diaspora, hope, despair and the hopelessness associated with the act of displacement. Fetrati uses satire in this collection of drawings to comment on issues of forced migration. The works start with a narrative form in which Fetrati weaves his understanding of the mental states of mind and physical hardships endured on the journey from one state of mind/place to another.
Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba
Open times: Mon, Tue, Wed & Fri 8.30am – 5.00pm; Firday 8.30am – 7.30pm; Saturday 9.00am – 4.00pm
