Coming to the Fountain Court in August, UNSEEN is a collaborative arts project which illuminates the hidden narratives of women's housing insecurity and homelessness. UNSEEN focuses on the voices of lived experience, enabling the unseen to become visible.
Curated by Belinda Mason - Director of Blur Projects, in partnership with the Women’s Electoral Lobby, UNSEEN offers an innovative opportunity to empower women through collaboration and participation. The artworks were generated through the mobile arts hub, which consists of a chrome Tiny House and Car, which moved between Martin Place, Circular Quay and Walsh Bay throughout 2021 offering the public the chance to stop and engage with the artists’ as they create their works. Artists include Fiona Arnold, Emily Stafford, Jai Juri, Carmen Salina, Evie, Alexandra Samootin, Paula Kaye, Linda Warlond, Belinda Mason, artists with disability Denise Beckwith and Dieter Knierim, First Nations artists Nadeena Dixon, Dixie Link Gordon, Barb McGrady, Roshee Taylor, Lani McLachlan and Peta Link, plus artworks from advocacy groups Immigrant Women's Speakout, Rough Edges and Homelessness in Focus.
Visit the Fountain Court exhibition space at the Parliament of NSW on weekdays, 9am-5pm. UNSEEN will be on display from Tuesday 3 - Thursday 26 August 2021.
If you can't make it in person, a virtual exhibition will be placed online following the exhibition's opening.
