Western Sydney based artist and Archibald Prize finalist (2018) Amani Haydar presented a deeply personal and moving series of works, sharing a vulnerable and oftentimes intimate glimpse into her unique perspective of life, having growing up in an Arab-Australian household, as a women’s advocate and as a witness to family and domestic violence.
