Press Release

‘Practise Till We Meet’ explores diasporic experiences, the condition of migration, and the challenges and actions taken to create a just life in a new place. Personal and political, traumatic and humorous, it looks across geography and through generations to consider how individual and community perspectives become intertwined with global upheavals. 

“For immigrants, understanding how to act in unfamiliar experiences requires practice. By witnessing or even participating in these necessary and emotionally motivated exercises, new perspectives and knowledge of this world open up to all of us.” (Hanlu Zhang, Curator)

The participating artists incorporate approaches such as community engagement, performance, interactivity and social experiment in their works as exercises of connecting and reconnecting. 

The work on display includes moving images, installations, photographs, painting and newly commissioned sculpture. The artists and collectives will hold events at esea contemporary’s new Communal Project Space, creating displays which grow and change throughout the exhibition.
