Cover of INDIGENOUS Kin Constellations

Artlink is an essential element in the nation's visual arts infrastructure and intellectual debate, and that this springs from its South Australian base is no accident.

Editors: Léuli Eshraghi and Kimberley Moulton

In this edition, we consider Ancestral materiality, intellectual traditions and expressions spanning the great oceans, skies and lands connecting the kin and Country of First Peoples from around the world. We see the artistic, economic and cultural paradigms as a reflection on life and death, on black holes and shining stars illuminated as constellations in the night skies from the times of our Ancestors and traced in the footprints made on the lands we travel.
