Defying Empire

Description

Defying Empire
3rd National Art Triennial
Defying Empire celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art practice, stories and achievements but does not shy away from Australia’s complex histories. It reinforces and showcases our resilience, pride, diversity and strength and our ongoing connections to Country, family, community, culture and history. The works demystify, re-engage, inspire and reinforce our resilience and, more importantly, our identity. From those who fought for our basic right to be counted to our modern-day warriors, and those yet to be seen in the future, keep up the good fight.
