The End/Future of History
Featuring works by Hoda Afshar, Lara Chamas, Yu Fung Chi, Katayoun Javan, James Nguyen, Sha Sawari, Cyrus Tang and Truc Truong. Curated by Phuong Ngo.
In The End/Future of History, contemporary artists examine how rights are simultaneously upheld and violated by government. In an international system that has been dominated by Western ideology, a fundamental flaw exists with the administering of rights. It is a system where the guarantor of rights is almost always the key violator. Can governments fulfil their obligations to citizens when presented with conflicting demands? This exhibition explores ideas on liberal democracies, their flaws and contradictions. Presented by The SUBSTATION and Hyphenated Projects as part of Due West Arts Festival.
