American Express Presents: Queer Creatives – Building Community

Electric Fields vocalist and multidisciplinary artist Zaachariaha Fielding, along with his father – contemporary artist Robert Fielding – speak with NGV Senior Curator of Australian and First Nations Art Myles Russell-Cook about the importance of community in their creative practice.


Robert Fielding is a contemporary artist of Pakistani, Afghan, Western Arrente and Yankunytjatjara descent, who lives in Mimili Community in the remote Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands. Fielding combines strong cultural roots with contemporary views on the tensions between community life and global concerns.

Zaachariaha Fielding is one half of Electric Fields. A multidisciplinary artist, Fielding also lays bare the constellations of his emotions, memories and experiences in his artworks.

Myles Russell-Cook is Senior Curator of Australian and First Nations Art, NGV
