˜Culture Warriors: National Indigenous Art Triennial’ is the inaugural exhibition in a series by the National Gallery of Australia celebrating contemporary Indigenous Australian art.
Taking the recent ˜Culture Wars’ or ˜History Wars’ waged over interpretations of the Indigenous history/culture of Australia as a starting point, the exhibition showcases works by artists across the country in different genres and media. Here, each work asserts a right to place, culture or history, placing each of the artists as vital players in these ongoing debates ” they are all Indigenous Culture Warriors.
The exhibition showcases five senior artists ” Jean Baptiste Apuatimi, Philip Gudthaykudthay, John Mawurndjul, Lofty Bardayal Nadjamerrek and Arthur Pambegan Jr ” and ten of the thirty artists included are from Queensland
˜Culture Warriors’ is a National Gallery of Australia Travelling Exhibition.
