Join Indigenous curators and writers Paola Balla, Hannah Donnelly, Léuli Eshraghi and Kimberley Moulton as they speak about their work and reflect upon specific models of decolonial art and curatorial practice. The conversation will consider history, theory and practice, and whether decolonisation is even the goal.
