BLAKATTAK, Sydney College of the Arts 2015
Following our groundbreaking exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum of Utrecht (Netherlands) the preceding year, Adam Geczy and I were seeking a domestic location who’d dare exhibit similar content. Sadly, to date, most still don’t have the balls.
When offered the exhibition space at Sydney College during their summer break, we set to task venting our sentiments toward the ever complacent colonial society and its continued denial of its notorious past. Blakattak typically received minor reviews in mainstream media but definitely struck a chord with students at the college and that’s, of course, the main target audience we’d hoped to inspire.
