Indigenous Languages & the Visual Voice


Sunday 15 September, 3.00PM – 4.00PM
Hall G, Talk Contemporary, Sydney Contemporary

The International Year of Indigenous Languages is a United Nations observance in 2019 that aims to raise awareness of the consequences of the endangerment of Indigenous languages across the world, with the aim to understand and promote how language holds cultural importance and agency. In this panel we look to artists using language and their visual voice to address inequity and inappropriate representation and place the artists worldview at the centre of the conversation.

Speakers include: Brook Andrew (artist and 2020 Artistic Director of the Biennale of Sydney), Jota Mombaça (artist, showing at Biennale of Sydney), Jazz Money (Digital Producer) and Katie West (Artist).

Moderated by: Clothilde Bullen (Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Exhibitions and Collections at MCA).
