Francesca Rosa: Memoria in Cairns
Francesca Rosa is a photo-media artist based in Etty Bay, south of Cairns. From 21 April to 18 June 2017, her solo exhibition, Memoria, will investigate the history of Italian migration. This will have a particular focus on the first post-World War II Italians who arrived in Cairns to work in the Far North Queensland sugarcane industry.
Some history surrounding this is that under the Italian-Australian Migration Agreement of 1951, men were employed to cut cane for two years as a condition of their financially assisted passage to Australia. Many Italian cane cutters became landowners as they gradually replaced Australian and British farmers.
Through collection of personal memorabilia, historical artefacts and archival records, Francesca Rosa offers a forensic quality to her work and a complex narrative about journeys and the passing of time.
Francesca Rosa’s exhibition will be at the Cairns Regional Gallery.
