Act-Belong-Commit Elevate Arts ‘Antipodean Encounters: Western Australian Artist and Taiwanese Culture’ and ‘Tea Ware’
You are invited to join us for the opening of two new shows at MIDLAND JUNCTION ARTS CENTRE, 11am – 2pm, Saturday 11 August, 2018.
WESTERN AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS AND TAIWANESE CULTURE
East & West Galleries
Personal objects have been the catalyst for conversation between 20 local artists and members of the Perth Taiwanese community who have immigrated to Western Australia. The artists have translated and contextualized these dialogues, creating new works to help navigate the increasingly complex issues embedded in the hybrid cultural society in which we live.
Tea and the sharing of tea is celebrated by many cultures in very diverse and often ritualistic ways. Tea drinking habits can be found worldwide. After water, it is the most widely consumed drink in the world. In conjunction with Antipodean Encounters: Western Australian Artists and Taiwanese Culture, MJAC is celebrating the tea ware and the art of ceramics.
