Exit's Patrick Fileti partners with Refugee Council of Australia for 'Unseen' photo exhibit in Sydney

UNSEEN Invite (1).jpgAs a part of the Head On Photo Festival and in conjunction with the Refugee Council of Australia, Exit director Patrick Fileti will debut 'Unseen', a photographic exhibition which focusses on the refugees of Australia. It will be exhibiting at the Arts Hotel Paddington, with the opening night on this coming Saturday, 13th May, between 4-6pm.

Through compelling visuals and recordings, Unseen explores the barriers refugees face, the difficulty of being torn between two cultures and their need to be recognised.

The Exhibition consists of 16 portraits of Australian refugees, an 8mm film and a 30min audio recording of powerful storied played throughout the gallery.

With the number of displaced people having reached over 65 million globally, this timely exhibit shines a light on those that need our support. Government have a duty to help them, but with most wealthy countries still treating refugees as somebody else's problem and hiding behind closed borders, poorer countries currently host an incredible 86% of all refugees.

Unseen challenges viewer's perception by revealing the many barriers we must overcome.
