National Indigenous Art Triennial
20 September - 23 November 2008
A National Gallery of Australia Travelling Exhibition
Culture Warriors surveys and celebrates the rich cultural diversity of contemporary Indigenous art practice across regional, remote and urban Australia. Housed within are the voices of artists working in the here and the now.
Culture Warriors plays tribute to the 'big guns', Jean Baptiste Apuatimi, Philip Gudthaykudthay, John Mawurndjul, Lofty Bardayal Nadjamerrek and Arthur Koo'ekka Pambegan Jnr, whose careers span the 40 years preceding the momentous 1967 (Aboriginal) referendum. Culture Warriors simultaneously showcases the work of 26 emerging and established artists whose strong and often poignant cultural narratives create a vivid visual dialogue of contemporary life for Indigenous Australians.
