Join us at the Digital Launch of Hyphenated Biennial 2020/2021,
with Welcome by
N’ARWEET DR CAROLYN BRIGGS AM and Uncle Larry Walsh,
a conversation between Carol Que and Joel Spring
recording with captions now available
Carol and Joel collaborate through ideas and writing. Due to living in different cities across different countries (Carol on Wurundjeri and Joel on Gadigal), their friendship has so far been largely sustained by phone calls and witnessing each other shitpost on social media. They will discuss smelling the sulfur, smashing pedestals, seeding atmospheres of solidarity, and mutually assured reconstruction.
This event is supported by The Substation and Footscray Community Arts Centre.
CAROL QUE is a Chinese migrant settler living on Kulin Lands since age 10. Her work is informed by community values, practices and relationships cultivated by and within Anticolonial Asian Alliance, from Melbourne to Sydney. Her writing, teaching, theorising, translating and organising is invested in the grassroots, co-creating anticolonial infrastructures here and across the seas. She has love for hotpot, karaoke, Virgo placements, the coming abolition of Melbourne University.
JOEL SPRING is a Wiradjuri man raised between Redfern and Alice Springs. A Sydney-based architecture graduate, he is an interdisciplinary artist working between solo works and Future Method studio. Working across research, activism, architecture, and broadcasting, he currently focuses on the contested narratives of Sydney’s and Australia’s urban culture and Indigenous history in the face of ongoing colonisation. Joel has experience creating, producing, recording radio/podcasts and other sonic work.
