All of the works in this show embrace a visual language redefining beauty through highly charged objects and images and help elucidate why so many facets of our identities are formed by imposed stereotypes, distorted imagery and oppressive histories. Through the exploration of oppressive power dynamics, we are invited to examine our own complex relationships to those systems. This exhibition is curate by Dara Schaefer, architect, art advisor and curator. She specializes in contemporary and remerging artists and works with individual and corporate collections. She is the founder of Wonderground studios, which exhibits emerging artists to raise funds for cause related events for Bent on Leading and Kids V Cancer.
