Karrabing Film Collective

30 June–30 August 2018

Bringing together over thirty individuals from different Indigenous groups from the Northern Territory and their non-indigenous colleagues, Karrabing Film Collective is a grassroots initiative championing new forms of Indigenous agency through the production of local film and artistic forms. Karrabing’s films are marked by an inventive artistic language aimed at challenging historical and contemporary structures of settler power.

The work is co-commissioned by the IMA, Frontier Imaginaries, PUBLICS, and the Van Abbemuseum.
