All We Can Do is Pray

Please join us tomorrow Friday 8th March for the opening of an exhibition of artwork by three contemporary Japanese artists curated by QUT Creative Industries PhD student, Emily Wakeling

All We Can Do is Pray is a group exhibition and public programs to be held at Frank Moran Memorial Hall 8-16 March 2019. The artwork of three Japanese artists—Meiro Koizumi, Junko Harada and Natsumi Seo—focus on the perspectives of marginalised people, including women, children and the elderly, in times of great loss. It features spoken, text and visual stories from World War II and the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami connected by the subjects’ sense of powerlessness over their destinies, carrying on from past traumas into the present day.

Presented by Boxcopy and QUT Creative Industries
