“All We Can’t See”, an exhibition illuminating the Nauru Files, The Yellow House, Sydney
By Lucy Feagins
All We Can’t See’ deserves your attention right now, for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s a group exhibition featuring a truly incredible line-up of leading Australian artists, including Laura Jones, Abdul Abdullah, Paul Davies, Ben Quilty , Luke Scibberas, Aida Tomescu, Joshua Yeldham and many more. But most importantly, this is a show with a powerful message. Each artist’s work is a response to an individual Nauru File, selected from over 2000 documents leaked to the Guardian newspaper in 2016. This important exhibition opens this Friday, February 2nd in Sydney.

In August 2016 The Guardian published The Nauru Files, leaked incident reports written by staff in Australia’s detention centre on Nauru between 2013 and 2015.
These files detail 2,116 individual cases of assault, sexual abuse, self-harm, child abuse and abhorrent living conditions endured by asylum seekers in the care of the Australian Government.
