1 - 29 December 2019

Wiradjuri artist Amala Groom will create a new site-specific body of work critiquing the Australian visual arts canon in Hill End. While working with a ‘third wave’ thematic, the artists will reflect upon the ‘first’ and ‘second’ wave movements which included artists such as Donald Friend, Russell Drysdale, Jeffrey Smart, Jean Bellette, Margaret Olley, John Olsen and Brett Whitely, who spent time in Hill End in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. This project prioritises the diverse perspectives and experiences of First Peoples and advocates for a shift towards the Third Wave movement from within the practices of contemporary Aboriginal artists.
