Patches of Hope and Resistance

This event has passed!

Patches of Hope and Resistance is a group exhibition curated by Gabby Loo and Steven Finch presented at Edith Cowan University’s Spectrum Project Space. This exhibition explores the personal trajectories towards decoloniality and environmentalism through dialogue that the curators and artists have with their peers. It is about the experience of the personal becoming political, the self in dialogue with others becoming aware of just and caring ways to be. It is about growing the good in oneself in the caring and kind ecologies of us.

Patches of Hope and Resistance will include works from and with Colin Smith, Gabby Loo, Michelle Bui, Nadia Macaulay, Nazerul Khairy Ben-Dzulkefli, Patrick Bryce, Ruby Doneo, Stephanie Lai, Steven Finch (國令 Gok1 Lim2), Zheela Vokes and Richard Vokes.

There will be ongoing residencies and works in the space, as well as workshops and discussion groups that focus on individual and community care as foundational for social change.

Curator Steven Finch elaborates that “Patches of hope are the resurgences of care for living systems and interspecial, multigenerational and intercultural solidarities; patches of resistance are instances of thriving despite the ongoing unlivability of existing capitalist, colonialist white supremacist death systems. These systems are connected in their exploitation of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour, and the epistemicide of art and cultural practices of the Global South.”
