South African Artist: Aasiya Evans

Friday 10th August / presented by James Hall

Edith Cowan University’s (ECU) Spectrum Project Space presents solo exhibition Orientalism & Imperialism: Veiled, Unveiled and Reviled by South African born artist Aasiya Evans. Her solo exhibition through digital engagement creates a unique dramaturgy in navigating the Oriental/Occidental dialogue through a racial discourse of Othering.

The Arabian Nights, The Thousand and One Nights, popular novella as an archetypal case study assists as a default background for Orientalism & Imperialism: Veiled, Unveiled and Reviled that addresses the importance of this text’s cultural continuity in perpetuating stereotypes and misinformation in the present day. Furthermore, it draws parallels with current events in similitude with how Arab Muslims are portrayed not only within contemporary Australian society but globally embedded within our social political entertainment network.
