Cause & Effect: Artists for Social Change



WHEN: 24 May 2017 – 4 Jun 2017


As part of Vivid Ideas 2017, Carnival of the Bold and MLC Gallery is presenting "Cause and Effect", a two-week visual arts exhibition by six artists, designed to shine a spotlight on some of the more current and pressing social issues faced by Australian society: War and Conflict, Environmental Destruction and Racism.

The exhibition will prompt audiences to consider and deliberate some complex, multifaceted and sensitive themes, aiming to raise awareness and conversation around these social issues and also give a voice to marginalised communities.

You are invited to the launch event on May 27, 8-10pm. Meet the six participating artists who developed work for this exhibition. They will share their inspiration, personal connection with the cause, process, reflections, perspectives and hopes. Artists include Andrea Srisurapon, Mandy Schöne-Salter, Marwa Charmand, Miriam Cabello, Sherine Tan and Tia Kass.

Join us on June 3 for a panel discussion with selected academics, arts workers and directors of NGO's to discuss the themes covered by the Cause & Effect exhibition

Opening Wednesday 24th May | 6–8pm.

Exhibition continues until Sunday 4th June.

Gallery open Tuesday–Saturday 11am–6pm | Sunday 11am–4pm.
