Indigenous: Blackground

Cover of Indigenous: Blackground
Issue 34:2 | June 2014

The fourth issue of Artlink Indigenous turns its gaze to Indigenous lived experience and its salience to contemporary Indigenous art. Multiple Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (and non-Indigenous) voices debate and document the personal and shared experiences that form the foundations of contemporary Indigenous art today. The co-editors Carly Lane and Glenn Iseger-Pilkington write: “Sharing these experiences is pivotal to the future of not only Indigenous people's cultural independence, but also to the future of visual arts as expressive/ interrogative tools in which to share our cultures, concerns and aspirations.”
