“We defy: By existing; By determining our identity; By asserting our histories; our culture; our language; By telling our stories, our way; By being one of the oldest continuous living cultures in the world." 

– Tina Baum, NGA Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art 

 

Bringing together works by 30 contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from across the country, Defying Empire commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum that recognised Aboriginal people as Australians for the first time. It explores the strength and resilience of Australia’s Indigenous people since first contact, through to the historical fight for recognition and ongoing activism in the present day.
