For nearly two decades contemporary artists from the Middle East diaspora have enjoyed international acclaim with significant representation across major international exhibitions in the Western art centres. This success can be attributed in part to the strong socio-political concerns that characterise their practices. Like their international counterparts, Australian artists from the Middle East diaspora contribute to the enduring relationship between art and politics and yet despite this, the practice of contemporary Australian artists from the diaspora is scarcely known internationally. This article seeks to offer some redress by introducing seven contemporary Australian artists from the Middle East diaspora, who for the past decade have achieved institutional recognition in Australia.
