Acute Actions: Responses to I Am Not A Virus presents the work of twelve artists commissioned through Diversity Arts Australia’s I Am Not A Virus initiative. This joint exhibition selection with partner 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art represents a range of artistic practices and conceptual reflections; these include acts of processing and healing from the trauma of racial prejudice experienced by Asian people. Through ceramics, photography, performance, music, craft, and storytelling, these artists have wrestled with racial prejudice and reframed multiculturalism to reflect this new lived experience.
