This publication is basedon the major exhibition All Our Relations, which explored the complex and multiple meanings of diaspora, its condition and experience as expressed through painting. As part of a discursive approach, All Our Relations brought together works by artists thatelicit meanings of the diasporic condition from a diversity of perspectives, methodologies and aesthetic languages. The medium of painting, with its deep and complex history becomes a particularly provocative lens through which to explore the complications as well as the celebration and richness of diasporic experiences. With a desire for an intergenerational dialogue the exhibition also presented proposals that push the boundaries of what painting is and can be.Featuring full-colour reproductions and installation views, each work is accompanied by a texts by a wide range of writers that explore each artist’s practice.
