Here + Now: A Decolonist Visualisation of the Illawarra
Saturday 17 October 2020 to Sunday 29 November 2020 (DAILY event)
Here + Now: A Decolonist Visualisation of the Illawarra is a First Nations led exhibition curated by ‘visiting curator’ Ngugi artist-scientist Stephanie Beaupark, showcasing emerging artists with a connection to the Illawarra; the works forefront First Nations perspectives and are grounded in storytelling about shared experiences, sense of community and place.
This exhibition is a call for a place-based decolonialism; a localised deconstruction of the pervading colonialist lens of knowing and being in the world, to rethink how as a community people can move forward in their diversity, through reconciliation and healing.
Featuring Jessica Brown, Bella Chidlow, Will Edgar, Meahlah Langlo, Alinta Maguire, Tom Page, the Ovuhm Collective, Beatrix Rowe, Kirli Saunders, Marlee and Keely Silva.
Closed Mondays and Public Holidays.
