Dreams of Another Life, Mildura Art Centre, Victoria

23 July – 29 November 2020

‘Dreams of Another Life’ contemplates the passage of migration – the act of leaving one place to make a new life elsewhere. M arrived in Australia as a 17-year-old in 1948 as part of Australia’s Mass Migration Scheme for Europe’s Displaced, post WWII. The body of work examined loss of heritage and homeland in a life shaped and constrained by work, gender and language.
