Subverting the Intolerable Narrative

Curated by Nikita Holcombe with Kirra Weingarth, Stella Chen, Carmen Glynn-Braun, Dennis Golding & Linda Sok

Subverting the Intolerable Narrative is an exhibition that explores the multiple ways that beauty and gentle aesthetics can be employed to address traumatic events or intolerable narratives that are embedded within familial histories.

The exhibition is a curatorial project between Australian writer and curator Nikita Holcombe with Taiwanese Australian artist Stella Chen, Kamilaroi/Gamillaraay artist Dennis Golding Weatherall, Southern Arrernte, Kaytetye and Ammatyerre nations artist Carmen Glynn-Braun, Cambodian Australian artist Linda Sok and Biri artist Kirra Weingarth.

The selected artworks stem from the artist’s position within Australia and their individual exploration the intergenerational effects of trauma through the lens of their indigenous and migrant perspectives. The artists will actively engage with each other’s narratives to present confronting histories and traumatic events through a range of varied aesthetic strategies.
