Indigenous: Blackground

Issue 34:2 | June 2014

The fourth issue of Artlink Indigenous focuses on lived experience. Multiple Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (and non-Indigenous) voices debate and document the personal and shared experiences that inform contemporary art practices. Co-editors Carly Lane and Glenn Iseger-Pilkington write: “Sharing these experiences is pivotal to the future of not only Indigenous peoples’ cultural independence, but also to the future of visual arts as expressive and interrogative tools in which to share our cultural concerns and aspirations.”
