All we can’t see

Shed the light. Artist Arielle Gamble curates All We Can’t See: Illustrating the Nauru Filesan exhibition centred on the heartbreaking and confronting reality of Australia’s Manus Island and Nauru Regional Processing Centre. Assembling a selection of Australia’s finest talent (think Stanislava Pinchuk and Ben Quilty, among others), Gamble assigned each artist to respond creatively to leaked incident reports from Nauru. Following the success of the exhibition in Sydney, Melbourne Art Week will be hosting Gamble’s exhibition across two weeks (July 31 – August 11) at CBD gallery Fortyfivedownstairs. The Melbourne version includes 30 artists, some are award winning, some have had direct ties to subject matter and over 10 are completely new to the project. The exhibition challenges audiences to examine Australia’s offshore processing policies, with all artworks offered for sale and proceeds donated to Human Rights Law Centre. All We Can’t See will run from July 31 through August 11.
