with opening remarks by Curators Glenn Iseger-Pilkington + Travis Curtin

unbranded presents work by Indigenous contemporary artists whose practices undermine and subvert the notion of a singular Indigenous ‘brand’ or ‘aesthetic’. Their work unpicks preconceptions of what Indigenous creative practice is, or should be, rejecting binary assumptions around ‘traditional/non-traditional’, or ‘urban/remote’ practices and other applied and often arbitrary categorisations.

unbranded as a curatorial enterprise questions these reductive and divisive modes of representation and interpretation, while affirming the diversity of contemporary Indigenous experience, both live and inherited. unbranded reflects the multiplicity, complexity and sometimes-conflicting experiences of culture and identity in contemporary Australia.

Exhibition continues until 22062019
