Dates: 14.02.09 : 10.05.09

‘Culture Warriors: National Indigenous Art Triennial’ is the inaugural exhibition in a series by the National Gallery of Australia celebrating contemporary Indigenous Australian art.

Taking the recent ‘Culture Wars’ or ‘History Wars’ waged over interpretations of the Indigenous history/culture of Australia as a starting point, the exhibition showcases works by artists across the country in different genres and media. Here, each work asserts a right to place, culture or history, placing each of the artists as vital players in these ongoing debates — they are all Indigenous Culture Warriors.

The exhibition showcases five senior artists — Jean Baptiste Apuatimi, Philip Gudthaykudthay, John Mawurndjul, Lofty Bardayal Nadjamerrek and Arthur Pambegan Jr — and ten of the thirty artists included are from Queensland

‘Culture Warriors’ is a National Gallery of Australia Travelling Exhibition.
