This group exhibition from Mixed Rage Collective showcases artists telling of their experiences of being mixed heritage. This exhibition considers the effect of ‘othering’, lack of representation, daily micro-aggressions and displacement felt by people of mixed heritage, interweaving the highly political and colonial backdrop into which they were born, as well as celebrating their mixed cultures and heritage.
"Mixed Rage Collective is a vibrant newly formed group of artists who all share being of mixed heritage. Listening to their lived experiences I learnt about the beauty and challenges of them growing up and how these experiences inspired their expression through art. Besides being a joy to work with, I believe each also bring a unique and engaging interpretation to the group exhibition Unapologetically Other. I invite you to view each artwork with fresh eyes and to join me in acknowledging and celebrating their beautiful mixed heritage." - Dominique Nok, Curator
