First - Emerging Indigenous Art

We are pleased to showcase emerging talent for NAIDOC week.
Here is a sneak preview of some of the artists and their work.

Jodie Harris - Disposable Days Jodie is a documentary photographer
and exhibited at the Queensland Centre for Photography in Brisbane last year.
Her work explores consumerist fetishism and life as performance.

Shannon Brett - Which Way Shannon creates artworks indicative of her experiences as an Aboriginal woman living and surviving in urban Australia following a childhood in a small outback town in Queensland.

Anthony Walker - Grandfather Increase Song Cycle. Anthony is an artist
who lives in the city but he carries on an art tradition handed down from his
grandparents. They inspire and inform his art. He reinterprets their stories and his
art reflects his contemporary experience.

Bulimba’s Anthony Walker is an urban aboriginal artist who subtly engages
with issues regarding identity and country. He works from his Norman Park studio.
Anthony is also involved in delivering music programs and will DJ for the
exhibition's opening night reception.
