Patterns of Migration

Nexus Arts
Feb 9, 2017 · 5 min read

Following her summer residency at Nexus Arts Centre as a Culturally and Linguistically Diverse artist, Haneen Martin explores her own cultural background and her position as part of the diaspora as a Malay-Arab Muslim woman who emigrated to Australia at the age of eight with her mother and brother. Martin seeks to interrogate how Australians treat each other based on their appearance and cultural differences in our current political climate given Australia’s history of migration and cultural exchange. This will be her fourth solo exhibition.
