How I See It: Blak Art and Film

An ACMI touring exhibition of First Nations contemporary art and moving image.

Spanning moving image, installation, documentary, photography and videogames, How I See It amplifies eight artists' and filmmakers’ perspectives on representation, the gaze, colonial archives and knowledge systems.

These eight creators consider how First Peoples have been historically represented on our screens as they also imagine alternate realities and futures. The exhibition showcases works that use diverse materials and ideas to disrupt and reimagine, as well as expand the artists’ practice, supporting experimentation with new technologies and mediums.

Tour slots available 2024 onwards.
