Come to 4a Creative Studio for a special screening of ‘Polychromatic’ by Sarinah Masukor, a short film highlighting challenges faced by emerging curators and why we need more diverse curators leading our cultural institutions. Featuring Rebekah Raymond, Talia Smith, Tian Zhang, and Nanette Orly.
Sarinah Masukor is a writer and filmmaker living in Sydney. In 2018 her short screenplay “Cut and Thrust” was performed in the inaugural Equity Diversity Showcase. She has been published in Frieze and The Lifted Brow and currently reviews films for ABC Arts. Between 2017-2018 she served on the board of Runway Australian Experimental Art where she co-edited an issue celebrating the work of diverse female filmmakers.
