Commissioned and Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, UniSA.

CONTACT brings together a group of diverse emerging artists exploring the themes of identity, politics, race, migration and modern slavery through photography, painting, installation and video. Curated by South Australian artist Elyas Alavi.

Invited artists include Kim Sunyoul (South Korea), Makeda Duong, Jonathan Kim and Abrahim Mohammadi (Australia), Beverly Onyangunga and Orna Kazimi (United Kingdom) Aziz Aziyar and Abbas Asi (Afghanistan) and Zubaida Husaini (Iran).

Although each artist has a different experience, they have a shared understanding. Their practice engages in a process of auto-ethnography, where they connect their personal history and circumstances to broader cultural, social and political concerns.

These stories are often not well known due to a lack of avenues to communicate with the outside world.
