Love, Displaced

9 February - 11 May 2019

In this century, feelings of love and empathy are often filtered through social media platforms and 24-hour news cycles. In Love, Displaced, film- based and video art offers new and innovative modes of navigating the white noise of contemporary life towards places of re-sensitisation and emotional engagement.

Curated by Felicity Fenner, the exhibition brings together some of the world’s leading contemporary artists: Jacobus Capone, Richard Lewer (NZ), Tracey Moffatt and Gary Hillberg, Christian Thompson; AES+F (Russia), Jeremy Deller and Cecilia Bengolea (UK, Argentina/France), Roee Rosen (Israel). Three of the Australian artists have specific links to WA, either their birthplace or the subject of works presented.

A Perth Festival exhibition supported by Visual Arts Program Partner Wesfarmers Arts.
