Discussing Australia’s history of race and power

March 9 @ 8:00 am - May 5 @ 5:00 pm AEDT

Discussing Australia’s history of race and power

Those Monuments Don’t Know Us coming to Bundoora Homestead

Those-Monuments-Don’t-Know-Us, a new exhibition at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, pushes the limits of Australia’s current political and cultural landscape.

Indeed, it engages in conversation with a colonial history that defines Australia.

Exemplified by the opulent British architecture of Bundoora Homestead, the works of these artists provoke questions about who we are and where we are going.

Artists in the exhibition speak to the social, cultural and political structures that continue to shape national discourse.

Most work, among other things, touches on the deep issues around culture, racism and power that still define us.

Besides, the exhibition features recent works and new commissions. The artists of these works bring diverse perspectives and cultural narratives to notions of ‘belonging’ in Australia.

The exhibiting artists include Khadim Ali, Timmah Ball, Hayley Millar-Baker, Phuong Ngo, James Nguyen, Nabilah Nordin, Diego Ramirez, Priya Srinivasan, TextaQueen and Siying Zhou.

Moreover, the works will span gallery spaces throughout Bundoora Homestead. It will include installation, video, textiles, performance, photography, sculpture and works on paper.

And yes, an opening event will be held on Saturday 16 March at 2:00pm. The guest speaker will be Kelly Gellatly, Director, Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne.

In addition, an artist/curator talk will be held on Saturday 13 April at 1pm, followed by a panel discussion, Whiteness and its Power: Beyond Diversity, at 2pm.

Those Monuments Don’t Know Us will run from 9 March to 5 May 2019.
