Annual Open

Commuovere (ko'mːwɔvere) -

to affect, stir, or touch emotionally



Curated by Amanda Jane Graham


The Open Submission Exhibition for 2023 has a focus on diversity and inclusion. We invited artists to share their stories to create links between their personal experiences and the audience using the power of visual language to start conversations, establish new connections, understanding and inclusion, For Commuovere, we welcomed submissions from artists at all stages of their careers, particularly those who embrace cultural diversity, inclusion, and positive change through visual art practices.


Exhibition | 4 - 11 August | Oxmantown National School


We are very pleased to announce that one of the selected artists will be awarded a solo exhibition in 2024.

Amanda Jane Graham is an award-winning visual artist and sociologist.


She narrates her story through a reflexive practice by delving into personal history and excavating memories,

experiences, and emotions, some of which are challenging but rigorously scrutinised and

almost always, humour emerges.


Graham articulates the personal audit through references to humour in popular culture.
