Laneway Gallery - Mita Chowdhury


Monday 6 March to Sunday 26 April

This conceptual multimedia exhibition is a response to the question "where am I positioned in this society, or is my existence represented and recognised? Does the cliche version of the Australian landscape represent any trace of me, my culture or the so-called multicultural society?". In this project, all the materials have been selected deliberately as representative of cultural identities. The project aims to represent a cultural and demographical picture of the West and its people.

About the artist:

Hasina Chowdhury Mita, mostly known as Mita Chowdhury, is a multidisciplinary artist with a principal focus on painting. She was born and raised in Bangladesh and migrated to Australia in 2007 in her early twenties. As a woman of colour and living within the diaspora, Mita now considers herself a ‘Global Citizen’. Her artistic practice investigates the ideas of identity, gender bias, feminist discourse, globalisation, migration, colonial and post-colonial discourse, marginality, and intersectionality. Mita is the recipient of the RMIT University Cultural vision scholarship for 2022.
