6 venues, 7 artists, 9 days
DIASPORADIC679 is a public exhibition of Fiji artists living in diaspora. Timed to acknowledge Fiji Independence Day (10 October) and pay homage to the Fiji telephone prefix, +679, the artists reflect on Fiji Islander identity and diaspora experience from seven diverse positions.
Collectively, the selected artists’ practices represent investigations into text and urban landscapes, feminism and sexuality, militarism, power and struggle. In the form of posters, the artists’ works are installed in the windows of six venues in and around Otahuhu Town Centre, South Auckland.
DIASPORADIC679 is part of the 2011 Southside Arts Festival which kicks off this Friday (14 October).
Browse the DIASPORADIC679 blog or pick up an exhibition catalogue at any of the venues to learn more about the artists and Otahuhu’s cultural landscape, from a Fijian perspective!
