Learn more about Brisbane-based artist Ryan Presley’s ongoing project Blood Money (2010–present), which deals with representation and exchange. In his exhibition at the IMA, Prosperity, Presley reimagines our figureheads on Australian banknotes as the heroes and warriors of Aboriginal history, including Pemulwuy, Dundalli, and Oodgeroo Noonuccal.

Hear from Presley, in conversation with exhibition curator Madeleine King, as they discuss the research process and the historical figures referenced in these works.

Prosperity is on view at the IMA until 28 April, 2018.
