Event description

Description

Chindia is a project consisting of a visual arts exhibition by six artists showcasing artists and performers with a Chinese and Indian ancestry, and a short film screening from the Chinese and Indian diaspora. Exploring issues of cultural and national identity, politics, displacement and diaspora memories, Chindia aims to provoke audiences to consider and deliberate complex and multi-faceted social issues.

The visual artists are Anindita Banerjee Ray, Anurendra Jegadeva, Guo Jian, Lilian Lai, Lucy Wang (Ru Xi) and TextaQueen.

The Chindia project will kick off with a visual arts exhibition by six artists including a showcase event, where the artists will be invited to speak about their inspiration and relevance to the theme. As part of the event, Chindia will also showcase performers from an Indian and Chinese ancestry. Exploring issues of cultural and national identity, politics, displacement and diaspora memories and connections, it is hoped that the project will build organic networks and relationships between the Chinese and Indian communities and the wider Australian community.

The Chindia project will build intergenerational and intercultural understanding for Chinese and Indian recent migrants (first generation) and the older generation (second, third and fourth generation). Additionally, the project seeks to enhance interaction and interfaith dialogues between these communities and the wider Australian community.
