Bentley (WA): Exhibition: Refuge

12 February 2019 - 18 February 2019

Refuge, which is part of the 2019 Perth Festival, presents two of the world’s leading audio-visual artists who give voice to the world’s refugees and immigrants in emotionally- charged new video installations.

It will feature works by Angelica Mesiti and Candice Breitz who present the complex experiences of their subjects through music, performance and the spoken word. Both artists make use of the creative cinematic medium to portray cultural diversity, with Breitz in particular challenging audiences not to ignore the message with a provocative juxtapose of storytellers – influential Hollywood stars Alec Baldwin and Julianne Moore with six real-life refugees. Mesiti in turn courts her audience through a compelling combination of joyful music and dance while firmly establishing an underlying narrative that gives gravitas to the plight of diverse communities displaced from their homelands.

The exhibition continues from 12 February – 18 April 2019

Opening hours: Monday-Friday 11am-5pm; Saturday 12 – 4 (until 3 March) and Sunday 12-4pm
