Curated by Abdul-Rahman Abdullah and Nur Shkembi
ACE Open heralds the arrival of eleven – a national collective of leading Muslim Australian contemporary visual artists, curators and writers – with their first major exhibition, Waqt al-tagheer: Time of change.
Waqt al-tagheer: Time of change examines individual experiences of specific moments – historical, recent or current – that have altered personal understandings of the self. Each of the artists brings forth a defining moment and the reimagining of time; from migration and social and political upheaval, to profound individual realisations.
Through this range of striking and articulate works, the collective’s diverse practices and perspectives raise a new platform from which to voice the dynamism and complexity of the Muslim Australian experience.
