25 March, 2018
In 2018 the IMA invited five Indigenous curators from across the Great Ocean to develop a series of exhibitions and programs in collaboration with indigenous artists. The group will share recent work, discuss their project, The Commute, and announce the commissioned artists featured in the project this September-December.
The Commute is developed by Sarah Biscarra Dilley (yak tityu tityu yak tiłhini Northern Chumash, Chicana), Freja Carmichael (Quandamooka), Léuli Lunaʻi Eshraghi (Sāmoa), Tarah Hogue (Métis, Dutch Canadian) and Lana Lopesi (Samoa).
The project asserts complex, wide-ranging, contemporary Indigenous experiences including deep ancestral knowledges and global connections.
In this afternoon presentation, the distinctive perspectives of the visiting curators were shared and the formation of the project was discussed.
