Notes

Immigrant Networks is an exhibition of multiple works by five creators. It incorporates elements of video, photographs, panels, physical models, and archival objects to engage with migration histories.

Research statement

Background The exhibition was made possible by the Australia Research Council Discovery Project DP190101531, Architecture and Industry: The migrant contribution to nation-building 2019-2022, with an interdisciplinary team from The University of Melbourne, Deakin University, The University of Tasmania and The Australian National University. Exhibition Team: Mirjana Lozanovska, Deakin University (Curatorial Conceptualisation, Planning and Coordination) David Beynon, The University of Tasmania (Catalogue) Anoma Pieris, The University of Melbourne Andrew Saniga, The University of Melbourne Alexandra Dellios, Australian National University, Co-researcher Contribution This exhibition is founded on scholarly academic research work, but involves processes of developing that work into creative and visual formats increasing its capacity to engage broader audiences -immigrant communities, architecture and landscape professions, government and heritage authority, multicultural organisation. It provides an interface between the visual, the spatial/immersive, and the representational. As such it brings an ethical, political and critical charge to the question of constructing and curating an ‘exhibit’ of research findings. What can the visual and aesthetic (sound) economies of ‘exhibition’ add? Significance Migration, industry and settlement were catalytic for modernisation in Australia after World War II. Federal and corporate funding for major industries shaped remote, rural and urban environments into modern industrial landscapes. Populations were drawn from war-destroyed nations, underdeveloped economies, and hostile political environments. Key industrial sites for hydro-electric power generation (Snowy), defence (Woomera) and raw-material production (BHP Steelworks, Port Kembla), independent small businesses and the associated industrial infrastructure and landscapes (trans-Asian suburbanisation in Melbourne).
