Fetishised. Commercialised. Protected. Exploited.
Representations of the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Ocean in academic and popular literature, print and online media and colloquial culture venues range from fond, romantic idealisations to barely concealed condescension.
Eight cutting-edge Aboriginal and Pacific Islander artists explore the many layers of meaning in the term native through performance and installation.
Artists: Torika Bolatagici, Maree Clarke, Chantal Fraser, Chuck Feesago, Ben McKeown, Candice Perese, Greg Semu, Latai Taumoepeau.
Note: Opening Night 27 September 6 - 8pm.
Curators Léuli Eshraghi & Pauline Vetuna
