Doh Mix Meh Up: Diaspora and Identity in Art

Saturday, 1 November
The Old Fire Station, 40 George Street, Oxford

'Doh Mix Meh Up' is a one-day international art exhibition and performance programme featuring artists and artworks selected from an open call entitled 'Exploring Diaspora through the Arts'. The event brings together artist works, photography, film, spoken word poetry, theatre and a panel discussion as a way of exploring the varied and multifaceted experiences of those around the world who have moved from home to make a new life elsewhere.

Diasporas exist globally and include people with layered and diverse experiences. Art provides a means to express these complexities and creates a platform for alternative narratives, which often challenge existing power structures. Art also invites the viewer to engage with these narratives at a personal level and interpret the subject for themselves. The range of media and creative approaches on show here are as diverse as the people and stories being told.

'Doh Mix Meh Up' is delivered by the Oxford Diasporas Programme and hosted by the Old Fire Station Arts.The exhibition is curated by artist and curator, Sunil Shah.

Featured artists: Pablo & Roxana Allison, Raymond Antrobus, Phoebe Boswell, Rosa Couloute, Scarlett Crawford, David Creedon, Afra Dekie, Sharelly Emanuelson, JJ Bola, Justice in Motion, Belinda Kazeem-Kaminski, Lynette Letic, Caroline Molloy, Melissa Tandiwe Myambo, Miyuki Okuyama, Kajal Nisha Patel, `Sharon Paz, Mikaela Toczek, Virtual Migrants and Clare Walter
