There’s No Place Like Home: Justice, Migration & the Arts
Hoda Afshar: Artist Talk
Wednesday 24 April 2019, 5pm – 6pm
Free, booking required
Hoda Afshar (winner of 2018 Bowness Prize) was born in Tehran, Iran (1983) and is now based in Melbourne, Australia. Working across photography and moving image, she considers the representation of gender, marginality and displacement. In her work, Hoda employs processes that disrupt traditional image-making practices, play with the presentation of imagery, or merge aspects of conceptual, staged and documentary photography.
In 2017 she visited Manus Island and worked closely with detainees, using photography and film to document the lives of detained refugees including Behrouz Boochani.
Part of Wednesday Sessions, a 6-month programme of talks curated by Mansions of the Future. The Wednesday Sessions will highlight artistic practices which are based on collaborative and collective processes, where art is actively and critically engaged with its immediate context.
