Defying Empire - 3rd NIAT Triennial

Congratulations to our two of our artists who are included in the 3rd National Indigenous Art Triennial, Defying Empire – exhibiting at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra until 10 September 2017.

Ngarrindjeri Weaver Yvonne Koolmatrie and Senior Tjala Artist Ray Ken

The 3rd NIAT at the NGA commemorates the 50th anniversary of 1967 Referendum that recognised Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australians for the first time. It explores the ongoing resilience of Australia’s Indigenous people since first contact, through to the historical fight for recognition and ongoing activism in the present day.

Defying Empire: 3rd National Indigenous Art Triennial brings the works of 30 contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country into the national spotlight.
