Resolution: New Indigenous Photomedia

RESOLUTION: NEW INDIGENOUS PHOTOMEDIA
26 Aug 2017 - 29 Oct 2017

This exhibition creates an experience of photomedia and Indigeneity that is physical, embodied and thought-provoking.

It features work made since 2011 from across the country and brings together some of Australia's most critically acclaimed artists, whose careers stretch back decades, with some of our most exciting emerging talent.

Many of the artists featured in Resolution work across a broad range of media; perhaps as few as one third identify as specialist photographers or photomedia artists, an eclecticism which reflects the diversity and dynamism of contemporary practice. Similarly, the artists often possess complex cultural identities which complicate any straightforward categorisation of their work.

The foundations of contemporary Indigenous photography were laid in the late 1980s with a generation of politicised and provocative artists who documented their experiences around the events of the Bicentennial marking 200 years of European settlement.

The last 30 years has seen its maturation and the emergence of artists who engage critically, thoughtfully, sometimes forcefully, with the present and the past. They decide how they negotiate their way in the world, making work which reflects the challenging, hybrid nature of contemporary society.
