Horsham Regional Art Gallery presents a collection of works celebrating some of the most provocative Indigenous photographers who, since the referendum in 1967, have been challenging established ideas of nationhood, history, and self-identity often utilising humour to great effect.
This exhibition explores culturally diverse narratives of self-determination, identity and gender including Indigenous and non-indigenous artists. It challenges the perspectives of mainstream Australia, provoking the audiences and questioning their relationship to ideas placed before them. It interrogates the way we construct history in politics, in museums, and through the lens of the camera while showing Indigenous artists taking ownership of their own cultural and self-representation.
Presented in recognition of National Reconciliation Week from 27 May to 3 June 2018.
Horsham Regional Art Gallery acknowledges the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk people and their continued relationship to work together as custodians of culture, country, heritage, lore and language. We pay our respect for these lands and waters of traditional owners past and present.
