NIRIN NAARM Artist Talks
Brook Andrew, Artistic Director of NIRIN, 22nd Biennale of Sydney joins exhibiting NIRIN NAARM artists, including Victoria Hunt, Justin Shoulder, James Tylor for an online panel discussion.
NIRIN NAARM presents the work of artists from Australia, Aoteroa/New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, Haiti, Kashmir, Mexico, South Africa, Spain and elsewhere. It is set against a number of increasingly urgent social, cultural and political contexts and backdrops, such as the climate crisis and devastating bushfires in Australia and Brazil; the current global pandemic; and in solidarity with global activism related to the Black Lives Matters movement, which has underscored local and global histories of violence and discrimination, along with questions of justice, truth-telling, reconciliation and reparation. NIRIN is at the forefront of global movements to centre indigeneity, to reconsider cultural narratives and practices, and to reimagine public spaces, monuments and memory.
