Standing Up, Standing Out exhibition

May 31, 2018 – July 13, 2018 all-day
Nexus Art Gallery
Lion Arts Centre
North Terrace

Standing Up, Standing Out sees Tutti Visual Artists come together with the Sikh community to engage in cultural discourse. Artists embellish turban cloth with their art, engaging in a mutual exchange of sacred objects, turbans and art. These turbans emerge as new, shared objects that bypass cultural differences and unite rather than define.

The hand of artist Charlie Taplin works on embellishing turban cloth

The Sikhi and Tutti communities have shared experiences of being ‘different’ and the challenges and adversity this can create.

This exhibition seeks to form a space in which these two communities can stand together and be a platform for examining what it truly means to be Standing Up, Standing Out.
