About the Event

About

IDEN-DEFY brings together portraits by First Nations artists that engage in the discourse around individual and communal identity. Portraits of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are inherently political. The act of identifying is a defiance of the last 200 years of forced assimilation and asserts the living continuum of blood lines of the Traditional Owners of our continent.

IDEN-DEFY explores the threads that connect us to our ancestors, to Country, to history and to inherited responsibilities. Together they represent the diverse community discourse around defining what modern Indigenous identities are.

Exhibition curated by Sam Harrison.
