How I See It: ACMI Curator Tour



Sat 14 Jan 2023


See below for additional related events

Join Kate ten Buuren, Curator of the How I See It exhibition, as she discusses the artists and works on display.

Held in the gallery, this is an opportunity to dive deeper into the themes of the exhibition, the artists and their artistic processes.

About the exhibition

How I See It: Blak Art and Film (16 Dec 2022 – 19 Feb 2023)
New visions from eight Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives.

Spanning moving image, installation, documentary, photography and video games, How I See It amplifies the 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.

How I See It, curated by Kate ten Buuren (Taungurung), will unveil five new commissions by Amrita Hepi (Bundjulung and Ngāpuhi), Jazz Money (Wiradjuri), Joel Sherwood Spring (Wiradjuri), Jarra Karalinar Steel (Boon Wurrung, Wemba Wemba and Trawlwoolway) and Peter Waples-Crowe (Ngarigo), alongside works by Essie Coffey OAM (Murawari), Destiny Deacon (KuKu and Erub/Mer) and Steven Rhall (Taungurung).
