OPENING May 11, 2-3.30 PM - Navigating Belonging: Understanding Place and Positionality with Angie Ma, Vicky Talwar, Siheng Wang and curated by Ella Taylor
Also, as art educators, the artists consider how the application of creative storytelling in learning contexts can reveal and support the diverse experiences of students. Their uniquely critical and creative approaches can assist their students in acquiring deeper understandings of the complexities of their cultural identities.
Navigating Belonging then becomes a representation of artistic process and acts as a visual manifestation of how art educators can contend with these “troubling issues” in pedagogy.
The exhibition encourages viewers to consider how creative storytelling can facilitate a critical reflection of subject positions and how this reflection may inform or change how we think about identity.
