First Nations Speaker Series: Tony Albert
Join us for the First Nations Speaker Series, presented in collaboration with GML Heritage and the Research Centre for Deep History at the Australian National University.
Thursday 13 April
In association with the 2023 Hyde Park Barracks Art Commission, Tony Albert joins us for the First Nations Speaker Series in April.
Tony Albert is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice investigates contemporary legacies of colonialism to prompt audiences to contemplate the human condition. Drawing on both personal and collective histories, Albert explores the ways in which optimism can be utilised to overcome adversity. His work poses important questions such as how do we remember, give justice to, and rewrite complex and traumatic histories?
The First Nations Speaker Series has produced fascinating discussions with prominent authors, artists, curators, designers and producers. Previous speakers have included Gawaian Bodkin-Andrews, Wayne Brennan, Professor Brenda L Croft, Blak Douglas, Dennis Golding, Dr Danièle Hromek, Dr Terri Janke, Dr Virginia Keft, Dr Leah Lui-Chivizhe, Alison Page, Matt Poll, Nathan mudyi Sentance, Hayden Walsh and Peter White.
