Alex will once again be exhibiting as part of All We Can't See, which is touring to Melbourne as part of Melbourne Art Week.
All We Can't See brings together some of Australia's most prominent artists to respond to the The Nauru Files, leaked incident reports written by staff in Australia’s detention centre on Nauru between 2013 and 2015, and published in August 2016 by The Guardian.
These files detail 2,116 separate incidents, including many cases of assault, sexual abuse, self-harm, child abuse and abhorrent living conditions endured by asylum seekers and refugees in the care of the Australian Government. Despite the harrowing nature of the files, the situation remains and the abuse is ongoing.
In the absence of media access to the island, the objective of All We Can't See is to illustrate these stories through creative expression, using art to shed light on all we can’t see.
The exhibition runs from Tuesday 31st July – Saturday 11th August at FortyFiveDownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane, Melbourne.
