Great Expectations: Presenting Cultural Stories
3:30 – 5pm, Saturday 29 October
What does it mean to make contemporary work as an Indigenous Australian? Reflecting on their experience researching and creating Spirit of Things, Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs (Stiff Gins) discuss the spaces between protocols and expectations in creating cultural works. Joined by Marcus Hughes and Jacob Boehme the panel will examine how Indigenous artists simultaneously navigate the contemporary art system and the politics of cultural representation. They will discuss alternative models and consider the roles that organisations, arts workers and audiences play in creating these new spaces.
