HOME 24 – Olana Janfa: Too Much Drama

‘Too Much Drama is a site-responsive project by Ethiopian-Norwegian, Naarm-based artist Olana Janfa.

Combining bold images and political statements with lightness, dry humour and vivid colours and tones, the exhibition brings together old and new works by Olana, displayed across Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre and Settlers Square.

Olana Janfa: Too Much Drama is the 2024 iteration of HOME, City of Greater Dandenong’s longstanding program of exhibitions featuring artists with a refugee and asylum seeker background.’

HOME 24 – Olana Janfa: Too Much Drama is open 12-4pm Tuesday to Friday until 6 September at the Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre, Corner Walker and Robinson St, Dandenong.
