My Country, I Still Call Australia Home: Contemporary Art from Black Australia
Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane
1 June - 7 October 2013
This was one of those exhibitions. The ones where you’re not sure of what to expect, but are completely in awe, even months after. A very nice blend of different techniques and mediums all with great concepts and messages behind them.
The exhibition explores three central themes — presenting Indigenous views of history (My history), responding to contemporary politics and experiences (My life), and illustrating connections to place (My country).

Featuring only 27 works spanning three decades. The cinematic ‘near documentary’ works are an intriguing mix of famous and unknown works, beautifully displayed as transparencies in light boxes that really make the images pop.
