About this work

Yvonne Koolmatrie, along with the other artists who made the works hanging on this wall – Emily Kam Kngwarray and Judy Watson – represented Australia at Venice Biennale in 1997. The Biennale is generally considered the peak of an artist’s career. These three artists were chosen in 1997 in honour of the thirtieth anniversary of the landmark 1967 referendum on the place of Aboriginal people in Australia’s Constitution.
