The Purple Line, Coda Culture, opening 24 February 7pm
Coda Culture is a nascent independent artist space founded by Seelan Palay. This coming Sunday is the opening of Benjamin Matchap’s “The Purple Line”, which seeks to interrogate assumptions of what is beautiful and worthy of being photographed, mapping marginalised bodies and geographies that assert themselves as what they are not. Find out more on Facebook.
Coda Culture is also hosting an Art Party Show on Tuesday 20 February featuring works from a range of artists, from Tien Wei, Chand Chandramohan and Jeremy Hiah, among others, in commemoration of the festive Lunar New Year season.
