Who’s Afraid of Colour?

Free entry

NGV Australia, Federation Square

Level 3, Indigenous Art

16 Dec 16 – 16 Jul 17

Discover the works of a broad range of Indigenous women artists whose practice is unbounded by convention. Bold statements explore colour and assert the politics of identity. Customary woven objects and contemporary works occupy the same space, while synthetic and organic materials alternate in unexpected ways. Who’s Afraid of Colour? looks at a number of senior and emerging artists from both city and bush studios, including Nonggirrnga Marawili, Queenie McKenzie, Nyapanyapa Yunupingu, Claudia Moodoonuthi and Jenny Crompton, and features large bodies of work from the NGV Collection that have never been shown together before.
