ICS PhD student Cecelia Cmielewski is set to travel to the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates to curate an exhibition called meta_narratives which opens on 1 November.
Meta_narratives brings together five artworks that incorporate the tool of storytelling while capturing important narratives through the use of sound, video and sculpture.
The exhibition includes works based on early bark paintings by an Australian Indigenous artist through to the transmedia and interactive narratives being produced today.
The exhibition is part of the program of The 20th International Symposium on Electronic Art (opens in a new window) (ISEA2014), being held in Dubai from 30 October to 8 November.
As well as curating the exhibition, Cecelia is also chairing a panel and presenting at the symposium.
Her PhD thesis is titled 'Identity, (U)topia and Soft Power: Arts Policy in the Co-Production of Multicultural Australia'.
