Curated by Djon Mundine OAM and Natalie King
Shadowlife is a significant exhibition that will assist in developing a deeper understanding of contemporary Australian art and the multiplicities of Indigenous culture in Australia. Curators Natalie King and Djon Mundine OAM have brought together an outstanding collection of contemporary Indigenous photography, moving image and installation by a selection of Australia’s most significant artists.
This exhibition will undoubtedly excite and challenge audiences in Asia and Australia. I commend Lesley Alway and Sarah Bond and the team at Asialink for their commitment and vision in supporting this important project and thank Senior Curator Tansy Curtin for her curatorial input and project management.
I take this opportunity to acknowledge the supporters of this exhibition who have assisted in the realisation of this project: the Australia Council for the Arts, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Gordon Darling Foundation and Besen Family Foundation. I also acknowledge the City of Greater Bendigo which owns and operates Bendigo Art Gallery and who wholeheartedly supports our exhibition program.
Bendigo Art Gallery is delighted to be working in partnership with Asialink on the exhibition Shadowlife that will tour Asia in 2012 before its display at the Bendigo Art Gallery in 2013.
