Darkness on the Edge of Town

Darkness on the Edge of Town

18 August 2016 to 5 November 2016 - Sydney
Exhibition

Curated by Clothilde Bullen

Art of the marginalised and dispossessed can transcend language and communicate the unheard voice of the mark maker. The title of this exhibition refers to the work of Indigenous artists whose imagery take them beyond the fringe to the centre of a narrative that challenges what we think we know about our colonial past. Drawing from the Artbank collection, complimented with select loans, Darkness on the Edge of Town presents works by a diverse range of Aboriginal artists that unapologetically challenge ideas round identity and power through a postcolonial perspective.
