Darkness on the Edge of Town – Artbank

Darkness on the Edge of Town – Artbank

Description

Tony Stephens, Director of Artbank, takes pleasure in inviting you and a guest to the opening of Darkness on the Edge of Town, a new 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 takes 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 key loans, Darkness on the Edge of Town presents works by a diverse range of Aboriginal artists that unapologetically challenge ideas around identity and power through a postcolonial perspective.
